This exhibit will explore the last 80 years of archaeological investigations in Cherokee County, highlight some of the more than 1,000 archaeological sites in the area, and feature rarely seen artifacts found in Cherokee County. On public display for the first time, these 50 objects are from private collections. They represent more than 8,000 years of Native American occupation and include ceremonial objects, game pieces, weapons and tools.
Lisa Tressler, archivist for the Cherokee County Historical Society, states, "Native Americans called Cherokee County home for 13,000 years; the Cherokee accounted for approximately 50 of those years. With this exhibit, we hope to open a window to the lives of not just the Cherokee but also these earlier cultures."
