Watson Brown Foundation Grant

The Watson Brown Foundation Junior Board awarded the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm a grant so that historic documents generated by the family and the farm business could be archived and preserved for future research. A selection of 100 items will be digitized and placed on the website of the Digital Library of Georgia. (Please note: the items for Shields-Ethridge Farm are not yet available online.)

The Digital Library of Georgia is a gateway to Georgia’s history and culture found in digitized books, manuscripts, photographs, government documents, newspapers, maps, audio, video, and other resources.

The Digital Library of Georgia connects users to a million digital objects in more than 200 collections from 60 institutions and 100 government agencies.
