Good as Gold
The Digging for Treasure exhibit is a temporary display that has been taking place from May 20 and will run through September 26. This exhibit allows attendees to travel through the various types of mining that have taken place over the years in Cherokee County. The exhibit begins with the area’s historical role in the Gold Rush of 1829. Visitors are able to view maps and documents detailing the locations and geography of the local gold mines. Historic photographs and artifacts from the mines are also on display.
The Digging for Treasure exhibit is a temporary exhibit, but the Cherokee County History Museum has many other options available throughout the year. One of those options include historical walking tours of local interest points.
If you’ve been wanting to get more exercise and learn more about local history at the same time, then consider taking a walking tour in downtown Canton or downtown Woodstock. Printable brochures are available with narratives detailing several points of interest including local historic buildings and cemeteries.
In addition to the walking tours, there are iPad resources available through the Cherokee County History Museum. These interactive displays allow students of history, of any age, to enjoy learning at their own pace.
Admission the Cherokee County History Museum is always free as it is staffed by volunteers. Visitors are welcome to stop by Wednesday-Friday from 10a.m. – 5p.m. and on Saturdays from 10a.m. to 3p.m.
