The Cherokee Historical and Preservation Society, Inc. was formed in 1969 by a group of citizens concerned about the rapid loss of Cherokee County’s historical heritage to development and progress.
The group now consists of nearly two-hundred members and has taken great strides to educate the public about the significance of the county’s numerous historical sites.
For more information about our current exhibits and the history of the museum, visit our website.
Cherokee County’s Veterans Museum houses more than 500 artifacts from both World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and several items from the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Group tours are available by appointment.
Gaffney Visitors Center and Art Gallery provides a variety of services including information on the city’s historic sites, dining, events, shopping, and provides maps and sells souvenirs.
