ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Soon, you can experience a piece of Albany history.

An Albany man donated his teepee to Chehaw after one that the park put out to promote the Native American Festival was ripped apart.

Bruce Garey donated this teepee that was used for a Boy Scouts outing at Chehaw back in the 1970s.

Garey reached out to the park after hearing someone vandalized the teepee on Ledo Road.

"It was a real neat connection back to the community," said Chehaw Park Executive Director Don Meeks. "Our message was heard. And somebody decided that they had something that they could help us with. It's a very cool story."

The teepee will be used during the park's summer camp.
