CHEROKEE CO HISTORICAL MUSEUM

                                Cherokee County Historical Museum

It is hard to believe that 2017 is upon us with what we pray will be another eventful and successful year here at the Museum.  It is also hard to believe that the Jordan’s moved into their mercantile store in 1921 – 96 years ago.  I can only imagine the excitement and pride they felt with this accomplishment. Our plan is to have a 100 celebration and in doing so need to bring the building back to its original glory.

You know by now how much we like to involve the community and have celebrations to honor the rich heritage we are charged with everyday to preserve.  One of our many goals this year is to raise $14,000 dollars toward upgrading the electrical and lighting for the current exhibits as well as all the new ones we plan to create.  The last upgrade was in the 70’s and needless to say with the addition of electronics and lighting we have stretched the current box to its limit.

With grants we will be able to create our Gin project, and Civil war exhibit.  We will be able to enhance and finish the Trail of Tears and create a 32 X 24 mural on the outside wall of the Museum depicting the Cherokee III Steam Boat that was the last steam boat built in Cherokee County and sank in 1936.  We are nearing completion of the Resource and Research Center in the attic but will need additional outlets and lighting to complete this project.  Jason Clowdis a year ago applied for historic status for the building so that we would be able to get Federal and State funds for the numerous projects that the building needs. We have no clue how long this process will take and feel that we need to give ourselves plenty of time to get projects done in the next four years.

The Museum through fundraisers has $2000 that we can start the electrical campaign with and are asking for your help in the way of tax deductible contributions of cash, electrical supplies, lighting, or labor to help electricians with this labor intense project.

This community and all our supporters have always gone beyond the call of duty in many ways to support the museum and the citizens of this great place we call home.  Thank you in advance for all you do,

Kathy Marko

Director of Cherokee County Historical Museum
