Historic Plaque, Cherokee Couny

Description: Photograph of a historic marker. It reads: "Cherokee County has a rich and varied history. Spanish and French explorers of the seventeenth century found Tejas and Hasinai Indians living in this area, and Spanish Missions were established in the region. Driven out of the United States, the Cherokee Indians migrated to this area about 1822, and were here at the time of the Anglo-American colonization in the 1820s and 1830s. Under the administration of Republic of Texas President Mirabeau B. Lamar, the Cherokee were expelled from the area in 1839. Following formal creation of Cherokee County from Nacogdoches County in 1846, settlement of the area increased rapidly. Family farms and towns soon sprung up throughout the county. The building of roads and the advancement of railroads and river navigation contributed further to settlement. The chief economic base of the county from its beginning, agriculture remained a vital force as industrialization and business interests developed. The establishment of schools and churches formed the basis for the area's social history. Cherokee County has been the birthplace of two Texas Governors, one Governor of Wyoming, and one Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836-1986."
