Moonshine Still and Cherokee Artifacts Needed

The museum of the Rabun County Historical Society, which is expanding its permanent collection, is asking area residents to donate or loan Cherokee artifacts and a moonshining still to the Society’s museum. The Society believes it is important for the public to understand how our Cherokee heritage and moonshining have shaped the county’s history and development. 

If the artifacts are donated and accepted by the Society, the value of the materials will be tax-deductible. Whether you are donating or loaning, your artifact will carry your name on the museum display if you desire. 

Bring your Cherokee artifacts or still to the historical society’s museum at 81 North Church Street in downtown Clayton. The museum is open every Monday and Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. We will determine whether your artifact can be displayed and provide you with necessary tax-related forms.
