Cherokee County, located in the great state of Georgia, is a region steeped in history and tradition. Established on December 26, 1831, Cherokee County was carved out of the lands that originally belonged to the Cherokee Nation. The county's creation was part of a larger effort by the U.S. government to claim land, leading up to the infamous Indian Removal Act of 1830 and the forced removal of the Cherokee people during the Trail of Tears in the late 1830s.

Named after the Cherokee Indians who inhabited the area, the county played a significant role in the development of Georgia. In its early years, the region witnessed economic and industrial growth through activities such as gold mining, agriculture, and eventually the establishment of the Western and Atlantic Railroad in 1850, which further stimulated economic development.

Throughout the 20th century, Cherokee County continued to evolve while maintaining its cultural heritage. Agriculture remained a primary economic driver, with cotton and poultry farming as major industries. Today, the county is known for its delightful blend of historical preservation and modernization, attracting new industries, businesses, and residents.

A fun fact about Cherokee County is that it is home to the Funk Heritage Center, located on the campus of Reinhardt University in Waleska, Georgia. This museum showcases Native American culture, pioneer history, and Southern Appalachian art, providing visitors with a glimpse into the rich history of the region.
