Cherokee County History

Home to 100,000 people in the year 2000, Cherokee County more than doubled its population by 2010 with 215,000 residents across 423 square miles.  But the county has been inhabited for thousands of years by Native Americans.

According to the Cherokee County Historical Society, numerous archaeological investigations have shown that Cherokee County was occupied as early as 11,000 years ago by the Paleo-Indians and then later by the Cherokee Nation. During the 1700s, the Cherokee towns were self-sufficient, self-governing, and each person was a member of one of the Seven Clans of Cherokee. Continuing their efforts to adapt to white culture and keep their lands, the Cherokee established a government with the capital at nearby New Echota.

White settlers began moving to the area in the mid-1700s. By 1831, the new Cherokee County was created, which originally encompassed all territory west of the Chattahoochee and north of Carroll County. Soon after, this area was dotted with gold mines and encampments of miners. Most miners did “placer mining,” which included surface mining or panning for gold in the many rivers and tributaries. Larger operations concentrated on mining vein deposits.

More on the history of this unique county can be found on the Society’s web site.

We can make that guarantee because we’ve sold so many homes and have so many satisfied clients we know it will be an excellent experience for you.
