New Echota State Historic Site

Updated 10/15/2012

Fodor's Review

At this collection of a dozen original and reconstructed buildings, you can discover the rich history of the Cherokee nation. Worcester House, a home and Presbyterian mission station, is an original building, restored in the late 1950s. The Cherokee Council House is a reconstruction of the 1819 building where the legislature met. The Supreme Court building is also a reconstruction, as is the print house, where thousands of books translated in Cherokee and the weekly Cherokee

Phoenix were published. Other buildings—including the 1805 Vann Tavern—and outbuildings were relocated to the site.
