Sequoyah Birthplace Museum Vonore Reviews
A wonderful display of Sequoyah specific Cherokee data. May 04, 2013
This very nice museum with many displays and areas to go through along with a nice sized gift and souvenir shop told the story of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians and specifically Sequoyah who was born in 1776 very near where the museum is located. His father was Nathaniel Gist, a Virginia fur trader. His mother was Wut-teh, daughter of a Cherokee Chief. He is credited with creating a reading and written language for the Cherokee Indians. The museum collects, preserves, interprets, and exhibits all of the data and items from the area and donations of evidence to support their mission. They have done a wonderful job of creating a easy to read and well thought out museum for all to enjoy.
