Two-story square-timbered log house, home of the Cherokees' most prominent leader who led his people for forty years as chief executive and primary diplomat. He became Chief in 1828, led the delegations of protest and resistance to the policies of removal, and ultimately led the Cherokee Nation in exile beyond the Mississippi on the "Trail of Tears".
