Card with shirts reads:


Your purchase of these fine-quality T-shirts supports the educational and interpretive missions of the Friends of Scull Shoals, Inc.  Our focus is on the extinct 19th Century mill town of Scull Shoals in northern Greene County, through historic and environmental education projects.

Scull Shoals, located on the Oconee River and on the Oconee National Forest, was settled in 1784.  Later grist mills, saw mills, cotton gins, and a four-story textile mill were operated by over 600 people.  Georgia’s first paper mill was located here from 1809-1815.  This textile and medical center flourished here until destroyed by a flood in 1887, which covered the village for four days. The town was economically destroyed and people began to leave. It became part of the Scull Shoals Experimental Forest in 1936, and the Oconee National Forest in 1959. It is now a Historic Recreation Area on the Oconee National Forest. 

These great-looking, long-wearing T-shirts are 50-50% cotton blend, in sizes from Youth medium to Adult 3X. 

Children’s and Adults sizes are $15.00. 
Adult 2X and 3X are $16.50.
