There are many ways to explore the beautiful mountains and crystal clear streams and lakes of Western North Carolina. But whether you choose car, bike or motorcycle; or boat, raft or kayak – you can’t afford to miss what’s around the next bend.

Cherokee Courtyard

The Courtyard of the Cherokee was created to educate and bring awareness to the public about the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, especially the Snowbird Community in Graham County.

The courtyard’s focal point is an Eternal Flame sculpture created by Nathan Bush, JR Wolfe and William Rogers of Rogers Metals. The sculpture features pounded copper elements that depict the seven clans and the Cherokee legend of the spider attached to a steel flame base.
