Qualla Town

Qualla Town, North Carolina, May 1848.

“Qualla Town is a name applied to a tract of seventy-two thousand acres of land, in Haywood County, which is occupied by about eight hundred Cherokee Indians and one hundred Catawbas. The district is mountainous from one extremity to the other, and watered by a number of beautiful streams, which abound in fish; the valleys and slopes are quite fertile, and the lower mountains are well adapted to grazing, and at the same time are heavily timbered and supplied with every variety of game.”
