Sequoyah Birthplace Adventure Lab

This Adventure Lab can only be done Monday-Saturday 9AM to 4pm & Sunday Noon to 4PM. The grounds are closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day. All 5 stops are on the grounds. You don't have to go into the museum to complete this Adventure Lab but I would recommend spending the $5 fee to visit the museum. It's packed with some great artifacts and exhibits! There is a large boat dock at N 35° 34.678 W 084° 12.882 if visiting by boat. Sequoyah was born around 1776 at the village of Tuskeegee, which was very near where the Museum is today. His father was Nathaniel Gist, a Virginia fur trader. His mother was Wut-teh, daughter of a Cherokee Chief. Sequoyah developed the Cherokee Alphabet. In 1821, after 12 years working on the new language, he and his daughter introduced his syllabary to the Cherokee people. Within a few months thousands of Cherokees became literate.
