Welcome to our little “Mayberry,” one of the best kept secrets for the traveler. Here we are in beautiful Vann’s Valley at the Cave that has sustained people for millennia with it’s fresh, tasty water pouring out of the limestone mountain. The Creek Indians called it home for a long time before the Cherokee Tribe drove them out. Then, the settlers drifted into the area and drove the Cherokee away on the infamous “Trail of Tears.”
The area is imbued with history. Forty years ago, a small number of Cave Spring citizens realized that much of that history was in the buildings that dated back 200 years and that many of these buildings were being neglected or either razed to make way for more modern buildings. The group decided to form the Cave Spring Historical Society. This small band was able to completely restore the dilapidated buildings in the Park and the Presbyterian Church.
Now, we are charged with restoring a dilapidated log cabin built by the Cherokee indians in 1810. It was nestled inside three other buildings and a lost treasure until 2000 when someone noticed a loose board and discovered this treasure. This little village of 900 will engage a community of volunteers to “unveil” the cabin and restore it as close as possible to it’s original state. Come see what we are doing and join us on our quest.
