Art & Culture

Art and culture

Hire a car and drive through the surrounding towns and villages dotted with museums that preserve the fantastic Cherokee tradition. The Cherokee County Historical Museum in Murphy traces the history of Native Americans and Pioneer settlers through an exhaustive collection of over 2000 artifacts, drawings, and photographs. Next comes the Junaluska Museum in Robbinsville which honors the Cherokee leader Junaluska. Displays of arrowheads, pottery, and spear points found in the Cheoah Valley are intriguing to say the least.

Franklin's Gem & Mineral Museum has eight rooms filled with gems from across the world. Look out for the shimmering quartz, garnets and blood red rubies, and the UV lights in the dark room that reveal the phosphorescence of the glowing stones. A short walk away is the Scottish Tartans Museum, a must for those interested in Scottish tradition.

Continue onwards to the peaceful meadows of Balsam Grove and enjoy your picnic lunch.

The gorge's crystal clear waters are splendid for boating and swimming too.
