Chief White Path was born in 1761 near Ellijay and grew up in this cabin now located at the Northeast Georgia History Center. His Cherokee name, Nunna-tsune-ga, translates literally as "I dwell on the peaceful (or white) path." In the land lottery of 1832, the cabin and the land it was on was awarded to the Pinson family, who were white settlers. Today, his former home is interpreted as a Cherokee farmstead c. 1835, with authentic furnishings, vegetable gardens and herb gardens typical of a Cherokee home just prior to the removal.
