History & History Related Items

Charleston history:

Charleston was first known as Walker's Ferry in 1808. After the Cherokee Indians relinquished their lands to the United States government, Walker's Ferry was settled by White folks and renamed Charleston. In the 1840's the railroad came through bringing much growth to the town. During the civil war Union forces took control of Charleston from the Confederates and used the old Cumberland Presbyterian Church for a hospital. Today the building remains, although in bad shape, and you can still marks on the building where officers tied their horses by the windows. In the 1950's Charleston grew again with the coming of Bowater Paper Mill. There is now a lot of growth around Charleston with the new Walker Valley High School being built just 2 miles outside of town. (2001)
