Life Along the Etowah and History Beneath Our Feet Exhibits
Visit the Hall of the Ancients and see exhibits that include artifacts from the 1995 Cherokee County Hickory Log excavation site. Many artifacts date prior to the Cherokee removal in 1838. Also, some items from the Mississippian, Woodland and Archaic periods of time are on display. The 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 the fall of 2017.
