Murphy's Cherokee County Historical Museum is home to tons of Cherokee artifacts, tools, and over 700 dolls donated by local resident Louise Kilgore. It's also home to an effigy of the Moon-Eyed People and a slew of fairy crosses, both of which we've featured on Strange Carolinas.

It's also home to Nuya Saligugi, which is Cherokee for Stone Turtle. This giant turtle sculpture can be found outside the museum and was discovered four miles from Murphy in a soapstone quarry near the Nottely River.
