Chatsworth in Murray County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Chief Vann House
A tempting prize to white men, the Vann House was the scene of a bloody battle between rival claimants in 1834. Deteriorating since, it was purchased in 1952 by a group of public-spirited citizens of Atlanta, Chatsworth and Dalton, and deeded to the Georgia Historical Commission. Restored to its original grandeur, it is a monument to the culture of the Cherokees.
Erected 1954 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 105-4.)
