The houses today are much bigger and sturdier. The villages have a town center just like our towns and cities also have where our counsel members meet to govern our cities. The structures are the houses are circular and had grass walls. Some house had straight walls and grass roofs to keep the rain out. Cherokees had summer and winter houses. The summer houses were rectangular houses. The winter homes were small, round homes also called sweat houses where the sick were taken. When settlers came along the Indians copied the settlers and built their houses by stacking logs and using shingles for their roofs.
