Cherokee County History Museum

The Cherokee County History Center is currently under construction. The museum, visitors center, and research library are temporarily closed to the public. 

The Cherokee County Historical Society was founded in 1975 by dedicated volunteers who were willing to work to preserve more than 86,000 documents, books, photographs and historical artifacts from the surrounding area.  Those items are now in the Cherokee County History Museum.

The museum, based in Canton, fulfills that vision and looks to teaching future generations about the past.  The museum cleverly blends the old with the new through permanent and temporary exhibits.  Many of them can be explored by using interactive iPad presentations.
