Chieftain Museum Major Ridge Home

It presents interpretive exhibits, both permanent and temporary, educational programs, and special events that relate to the Ridge family and Cherokee history and culture. The Chieftains Museum operates as a private, non-profit organization committed to telling the story of the house, while preserving the site for future generations.

We hope you enjoy our work.
