WSB-TV to Feature Oak Hill, Berry College on Georgia's Hidden Treasures

Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum will join Berry College as featured attractions on the next edition of Georgia’s Hidden Treasures, a television special airing at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, on WSB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Atlanta.

Georgia’s Hidden Treasures sends news anchors John Pruitt, Jovita Moore and Justin Farmer to locations throughout the state in an effort to promote tourism and shine the spotlight on extraordinary places that “most people don’t even know about.”

This episode will highlight the unique history of Berry College and the home of its founder, Martha Berry. In the piece, Moore will interview alumni Louise Moon Garrison and Dr. Randy Green as they share their memories about growing up at Berry. Patrice Shannon, another Berry alumna who now serves as communications and educational outreach coordinator for Oak Hill, also will be seen providing visitor information about Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum.

Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum is a popular attraction and the former home of Berry College founder Martha Berry (1865-1942). It is located at the intersection of Georgia Loop 1 and U.S. Highway 27 in Rome, Ga. More information is available via the Web at www.berry.edu/oakhill.
