While the Cherokee people are certainly an important part of our past, the Cherokee County History Center covers all of Cherokee County, GA’s history. We have a robust collection of Indigenous pottery and other Native American artifacts in the Carolyn Smith Galt Gallery, but we also cover the history of the Civil War, moonshining, desegregation, and much more.
Typically, visitors spend between 45-60 minutes exploring the galleries. The experience is self-guided so please feel free to go at your own pace. Guests are welcome to stay as long as they would like provided they don’t stay after we close!
The Cherokee County History Center is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.. The History Center is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Hours may vary based on holidays or special events.
We do not offer guided tours at this time. We’re working on recruiting and training docents and plan to offer guided tours in the near future.
We provide discounted rates for school field trips and large groups (10+ people) when booked in advance. Visit our Group Rates page to learn more!
