CHEROKEE VILLAGE, TX
CHEROKEE VILLAGE, TEXAS. Cherokee Village, on Caney Creek halfway between Kilgore and Henderson in northern Rusk County, was a Cherokee Indian settlement at the time of the arrival in the area of the first white settlers. The site was identified on maps in the late 1830s and may have been the "Village of Chief Bowles" where the 1836 treaty with the Cherokees was signed. The settlement later disappeared, and no trace of it remains.
