How Did TImpson Creek GAllery Get Its Name?

Timpson Creek flows into Lake Burton and is named after John Timpson, the first Cherokee Indian to be baptized in the Baptist faith.

This is Dwayne’s home and inspired our store’s name “Timpson Creek Gallery”.

The Gallery consists of 2 buildings. The main house is a treasure trove of unique art, jewelry, antiques and hand crafted furniture. The second building is “Timpson Creek Millworks”, owned by Dwayne Thompson, Cecile’s husband.
