Jamming 200 years of history into an hour and a half wasn't easy, but the Northeast Georgia History Center managed to do it during its annual Taste of History fundraising luncheon.

This year's event was dubbed "Cherokees, Churches, Choo Choos, Chickens and Churns" and was designed to pay tribute to as many unique aspects of Hall County's history as possible. 

In addition to an auction to raise money for the history center's various educational programs, the Thursday afternoon event featured acting vignettes with actors portraying Lyman Hall, Dr. James Longstreet, Dr. E.E. Butler and other historical figures who formed Hall County's history.
