Thank you for your interest in Cherokee County's Sites Worth Saving. Voting is now closed for the sites and the top three are: Canton Grammar School, Stripling-Lovelady House, Ft. Buffington Site. We will be in contact with the owners of the sites to discuss any assistance we may be able to offer. Please check back on this site in the future to learn about upcoming projects with the endangered sites. Also be sure to visit our website or our Facebook page. Thank you again!
Designation on this list will not restrict or limit the properties in any way. The main goal of this program is to identify historic sites in the area that are endangered, and by recognizing these sites, create community involvement and assist the owner in stabilizing or preserving the site.
The Historical Society greatly appreciates your support. However, we request that the public respect the owners' privacy by not revealing any personal information on this website, by visiting the sites, or by contacting the owners. These sites were nominated by the public and not by the owners themselves. As far as we know, none of these properties are currently for sale.
This project has been funded in part by a grant from the Richard and Julia Moe Preservation Fund for Statewide and Local Partners of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
These community partners have already volunteered their services to help preserve these important historic sites: Architect Roy Taylor; Contractor Richard Wright; and Bates Building Materials.
Please support our work in preservation by joining the Cherokee County Historical Society.
