Sequoyah's Cabin

Sequoyah created the Cherokee written alphabet. His cabin is preserved here at a small indoor museum.

[Jessica Rowe, 01/18/2018]

The museum was built around the cabin in 1936 by the WPA. Sequoyah built the cabin himself in 1829. It was his last home, but he died no-one-knows-where, on a trip to find a rumored band of Cherokee in Mexico. October 2019: Photo added.
