The historical Cherokee County Courthouse was built in 1927, after a fire destroyed the previous brick courthouse on January 16, 1926. The Classical Revival Style courthouse was designed by architect James J. Baldwin, and built by James Fanning, Incorporated. The cost of construction was $200,000.00. The courthouse is constructed of Blue Marble that was actually quarried locally in the Marble community of Cherokee County. The Cherokee County Courthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Cherokee County has had 4 previous courthouses; three of them were burned. The Cherokee County Courthouse will soon undergo a long overdue renovation and expansion project. Please follow the progress under our News and Updates page.

Cherokee County was formed in 1839 from a part of Macon County, and is North Carolina’s western most county, bordered by the states of Tennessee and Georgia, and located in the southern tip of the Great Smokey Mountains. Cherokee County was named to honor the Cherokee Indians who inhabited this area before being removed and relocated to Oklahoma in 1838. Those who escaped removal to Oklahoma now live on the Cherokee Indian reservation in Cherokee, N.C. Cherokee County has a historical museum, displaying over 2000 authentic Indian artifacts discovered in Cherokee County (The museum is located next door to the Courthouse).
