There was a error in Sunday’s front page story on the Caney Creek documentary.

“Going Home” the history of the Caney Creek community will be shown Thursday at the Museum Center at Five Points at 6:30 p.m.

The documentary received the East Tennessee Historical Society's 2013 Award of Distinction.

Caney Creek was a town from 1912-1943 south of Powerhouse No. 2 on the Ocoee River in Polk County. The village was home to those who worked at the powerhouse and their families.

The project began with an interview Will Moore did with Doc German, a former resident of Caney Creek, during an internship.

The project included interviews of six of the former residents, including Anna Ruth Lillard Green of Benton, Troye Moore Linginfelter of Alcoa, Margaret Poe Trotter of Blue Ridge, Ga., and Marilyn Lowe Kirkland, Geraldine Lowe King and John E. "Doc" German of Cleveland.

Standard museum admission fees of $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students with free admission for children under 5 apply for the documentary showing.

Showings of “Going Home” are also being scheduled for Athens, Ducktown, Etowah and Benton, as well as Ringgold and Dalton, Ga.

The documentary is available at The Museum Center at Five Points, The Ducktown Museum and online at
