Congratulations to POWER 10 client, History Cherokee (formerly the Cherokee County Historical Society), on the groundbreaking of their new multi-functional cultural attraction, the Cherokee County History Center, funded by the POWER 10 managed History in the Making campaign, which to date has achieved 92% of the $2.8 million funding goal.

The new History Center will be a state-of-the-art, regional tourist destination as well as a headquarters from which the History Cherokee will lead local historic preservation efforts. When fully operational, the History Center will welcome an estimated 20,000 visitors per year who will engage with new museum exhibits, experience a wide offering of quality programming and utilize its high-quality research resources.

POWER 10 is incredibly proud of the History Center team, and is grateful for the excellent leadership of the staff, volunteers, and investors. Development Director Kevin Donovan, Executive Vice President Amity Farrar, and the rest of our team at POWER 10 look forward to visiting the new History Center when it opens next spring!
