cherokee-village=200x116Outside is the Cherokee Homestead Exhibit which officially opened in 2010 and includes a Cherokee summer house, winter house and corn crib designed to conform to the historical record regarding late 16th century to 18th century Cherokee structures. It also displays art representing elements of Cherokee heritage and culture, including clan masks, murals and quotes in the Cherokee language.

Live demonstrations take place for special occasions but self guided walking tours of the Homestead offer travelers inspiration to study and see more regional Cherokee heritage.  Cherokee Homestead is open all year.
