Cherokee County, located in the far western region of North Carolina, was established in 1839. The county was formed from portions of Macon County and named after the Cherokee tribe of Native Americans who originally inhabited the area. Covering approximately 465 square miles, it sits within the Blue Ridge Mountains and is part of the Appalachian Mountain chain.

Before the creation of the county, the Cherokee people lived in the region for centuries. They established farming communities and developed a government, art, and a distinct culture. However, in the 1830s, the United States government forcibly removed the Cherokee people from their land during the infamous "Trail of Tears" to make way for white settlers.

Cherokee County continued to grow over time and developed a notable agricultural industry, primarily focused on livestock, dairy, and crop production. The completion of the Great Western Railroad in the late 1800s helped boost the economy by connecting the county to major markets and trade centers.

In the 20th century, the county went through various periods of growth and economic change. After World War II, the manufacturing industry gained prominence within the county. Today, Cherokee County maintains a diverse economy, while also preserving its historic charm and natural beauty.

One fun fact about Cherokee County is that it houses the Fields of the Wood, an outdoor park with biblical displays and exhibits, including the world's largest Ten Commandments display, which covers the entire side of a 300-foot-wide mountain slope. Additionally, the county is known for its scenic drives and abundant outdoor recreational activities, such as hiking, fishing, and exploring its beautiful landscapes.
