This is truly a step back in time. People lived in the house on the property until the 1950's. The print shop was the most interesting to me as we were shown how the print machine works. We took home a copy printed from the machine!

Very interesting insight into the history of the Cherokee Indians. Nicely restored homes and businesses that can be tour. Well done 20 minute introductory film and small museum. More walking than expected so wear comfortable shoes and on very hot days have water. Very reasonable price.

Great spot to see how the Cherokee Nation lived in the early 1800's prior to the Cherokee removal in the 1830's.

We visited on a weekday and in this big site of the former Cherokee capital town, there were very few visitors. That fostered the sense of a desertion which goes with the sad history of the place. Cherokee people were evicted from their thriving businesses and farms so that white settlers could take over. You can visit some sample restored... More

My childs class took a field trip here. It was a nice trip & they did good keeping the childrens attention. If we visited on our own time, this trip would be short. It wouldn't take long to see this site, so it would be a nice spur of the moment trip. Its affordable and nice to take a step... More

An excellent visit for learning about Cherokee history, especially about this capital of the Cherokee nation and the Trail of Tears. There is a 17-minute film that explains the town and the Trail of Tears, and it's very well done. The grounds are well laid out and full of history. Get a map and follow your way around to the...

We stopped here on the way up north and it was a real highlight of our trip. This location was the capital of the Cherokee Nation prior to their forced removal. The site has several cabins and buildings, some original (but moved to this site), plus the original homestead of a missionary. We were fortunate when we toured due to... More

I personally found (in my conventional mind) this a bit out of sink at the dimensions of these buildings. HOWEVER,you should never let that put you of from visiting this reflection of the history within the the Deep South and US has to offer. This is how a whole society tried to adapt to a modern mind st and gave... More

New Echota tells a strong story. Watching the video before touring the grounds establishes a sense of history that lingers long after leaving this special place.

I had not been to New Echota in years, so I took my 2 teen boys to check it out. The museum was small but informative; the film added to our understanding. The structures were impressive in their accuracy. We really enjoyed the easy trail that overlooked the creek and pond.
