Genealogy and history

We have a research room for history and genealogy, old artifacts, a lecture hall, and a bring-your-own-lunch dining area.

Research (we still have our stuff, but it's being moved)

Our research room is packed with documents, maps, and photographs relating to Campbell county (now much of south Fulton County and Douglas County), Fairburn, and surrounding areas. Most of this material is not available elsewhere. A microfilm reader is available for viewing microfilms (of course).

Ask a question

If you have a question about old Campbell County's history or people, send an email to askocchs@numail.org. We'll ask our research staff and historians to try to send you an answer.

Museum closed while we relocate, but here's a preview
Old black high-top boots in OCCHS museum

These old high-topped women's boots and the small photograph on the wall show us how people dressed in the early part of the 20th century. Just imagine getting up in the morning and lacing these these things before going out to church.


You may get a little chill when you look at the medical instruments in the next picture.

Lecture hall closed for the moment

We schedule educational presentations and other events throughout the year. Please check the dates and pay us a visit.

Lunch room closed for a while

Research is strenuous business. You're welcome to bring a lunch and relax in our casual and friendly dining area. You never know who may be there—maybe some of your distant cousins.
