We visited the Vann House when our children were in elementary school. They both loved it. We learned a lot about the Cherokee nation and it was particularly interesting since their great grandmother was adopted and was a full blooded cherokee. The guide was very informative and ready to answer any of out questions. We learned an interesting fact about the doors in the house. The panels form a cross. It is why our doors in homes today are made the way they are but no one really knows the history behind it. That particular day we were the only ones there and when we told them we were home-schooled they let our children in for free!
