Volunteer Opportunites

If you have a special talent such as spinning, weaving, or basket making, quilting, or woodworking, share your gift with the many school students who visit our Appalachian Settlement.


 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 2018.
