Pay a few bucks to tour this beautiful home from the late 1830s. See how the civilized Cherokee lived at that time. They were not the plains Indians. Visit the out buildings also.

This is a three level home and on two floors, there is really interesting furniture. Watch your head if you go to the third level, because it is low clearance.

You can easily spend a couple of hours there, lots of photos, and history to read, period furniture. Staff is very friendly, it is a laid back place to go.

Excellent restored home of merchant who came with the Trail of Tears. Informative signs throughout the property mention his slaves, the various buildings that used to be there. It is a worthy complement to the Cherokee Heritage Center.

This is a must see place for history lovers and it doesn't cost anything, although they do accept donations. The architecture of the house is impressive for the time period in which is was built and it has an interesting Cherokee story.
