Franklin County now has a new-featured attraction.
State Representative Johnny Mack Morrow announced Friday that he is opening his Cypress Cove Farm to the public.
"We're going into tough economic times," Morrow said. "We want to give families a place for recreation that's close to home."
Morrow has teamed up with the Red Bay Parks and Recreation Department, Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and the Bear Creek Development Authority give local families a fun and educational look at the past.
"I can guarantee we'll have a blacksmith and gristmill, but we are asking for volunteers who want to come in and help out so we can have more activities going on," Morrow said.
The farm will be open on the first and third Saturday of each month from March to October.
