Hiwassee River Heritage Center
"The Hiwassee River Heritage Center is now open. Phase I of the Center opened Friday May 17 with a special ribbon cutting event. The new center is located on North Lee Highway in Charleston at 8746 Hiwassee Street. CCH Historical Society purchased a vacant bank branch in Charleston and re-purposed the building as a heritage center, part of an overall heritage development plan to recognize the significant history on the banks of the Hiwassee River. This history includes the Trail of Tears and Civil War. Present-day Charleston is one of the most significant Trail of Tears sites in the eastern United States. The Hiwassee River was a pivotal crossing for troop movement in the Civil War. These stories of human spirit, tragic sacrifice and more are detailed at the Hiwassee River Heritage Center."
