Welcome to the Funk Heritage Center
New Exhibits Opened in the Hall of the Ancients
"History Beneath Our Feet" and "Life Along the Etowah" are now open in the Hall of the Ancients. Both exhibits include artifacts from the 1995 Cherokee County Hickory Log excavation site. The "dig" was completed before the Canton Walmart was built. Many artifacts date prior to the Cherokees removal in 1838. In addition, some items from the Mississippian, Woodland and Archaic periods of time are on display. These new exhibits would not be possible without donations from our members, volunteers and the community. A third exhibit about Cherokee life is planned to open in 2018.
