Last year was the first year in many years that the Sulphur Well Homecoming was not held, due to Covid. This year, the tradition returns.


The tradition of the homecoming held a third Saturday and Sunday in August, started in the late 1880s.


The tradition began because a young group of people from Hart County set the third Sunday in August as a day for folks to go to “the Grove” and meet.


In the old days, people put up tents as shelter along the river and camp. Tent revivals, and of course music, were a mainstay of the tradition.
