The Cherokee County Property Survey includes an extensive collection of historical property surveys from Cherokee County. Each survey entry is accompanied by multiple photos of the property as well as architectural data about the buildings at that address (e.g. when it was built, by whom, building materials, architectural style, etc.) Presently these surveys contain information not only of historic buildings throughout the county, but also biographical information about notable people who have lived in them. Thus the site should be of interest not only for architectural buffs but also those seeking a better understanding of Cherokee County history. Each entry can be accessible individually using several different categories including, address, current use, data of construction, building type, style, etc. The surveys were conducted by Dan Latham of the Cherokee County Historical Society in 1976 and 1988 and were recently digitized.
