My four year old loved the Cherokee village. It really helped her envision history. Unfortunately, the museum was not open since we unknowingly came in the off-season. We didn’t see any mention of seasonal hours until we found a brochure outside near the exhibit. Would...More

Winter house is a beautiful building, coll in the summer and warm in the winter. My favorite is the round corn crib. A learning experience for the whole family. Check for events located in downtown Hayesville NC.

The winter hut is a great replica. It was closed the day we were there but you are free to see all the camp exibits outside and there is a path you can hike to the indian mounds.

Sandy Nicolette was our guide for this, and it was quite interesting. The Old Jail museum is right above this. The lady there is quite informative. Made it a great experience for our group.

This is a sweet little exhibit in the old jail. It is definitely worth a short stop when sightseeing in this beautiful area.

Another little gem in the heart of Hayesville. It is adjacent to the town museum which is in a one hundred year old jail. Another free attraction in Hayesville.
