The Senoia Area Historical Society (SAHS) is debuting a new video called “Welcome to Senoia” that features the city’s past and present and highlights the city’s offerings.
With its quaint shops, delicious cuisine, historic buildings, and filming locations for dozens of movies and television shows, the community has something to interest both residents and visitors.
In the film, photos from the SAHS archives were added to recent shots of shops and homes to create a journey through time. It describes how a community that was originally founded by settlers from South Carolina in the 1820s has become the quintessential hometown for thousands of residents as well as a world-famous tourist destination.
The video was written, directed, and narrated by SAHS member Lynn Horton and produced by Roger Sisk.
Music was contributed by Carter Roger, a 16-year-old sophomore at Starr’s Mill High School in Fayetteville, who wrote and performed an original score on the guitar.
The whole project took six months from conception to unveiling.
The video can be viewed at the Senoia Downtown Development Authority’s Welcome Center at 68 Main Street. The Welcome Center is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The video can also be viewed on YouTube.
