Vann Cherokee Cabin



Vann Cherokee Cabin (Green Hotel)


Historical Significance: Around 1810, or perhaps as late as 1823, a log cabin was built where the town of Cave Spring is now located, most likely by a Cherokee and perhaps by David Vann and his family. At a later date, a two-story addition was constructed around the cabin. During the 20th century, the property was known as the Green Hotel. After the hotel closed down, a wing of the hotel (dated from the post-removal period) was removed. A December 2012 dendrochronology study has helped determine the cabin’s construction date (although not definitively). The local historical society is taking steps to preserve and restore it back to its pre-removal appearance and condition.
