The Worcester House

The Worcester House at New Echota

We are now approaching the Worcester house and Presbyterian Mission Station, which was built in 1828. It is the only original home still located at New Echota. The entire town of New Echota was destroyed at the start of the Trail of Tears and Fort Wool was constructed to imprison the Cherokee pending their removal. The Worcester family lived here from 1828 to 1834, when the land and estate were given away in the 1832 Georgia Land Lottery. The house has been restored to its 19th Century condition.
