*Cashiers (pronounced cash-ers) is an unincorporated village in the south of Jackson County that was founded when Col. Jack A. Zachary discovered the area with his son in 1832. Locals say the village was named after a horse owned by the area’s second settler, James McKinney. As the story goes, McKinney paid a high price for a white stallion which he named Cash, but when it was time for the family to move its horses and cattle for the winter, Cash could not be found. When the family returned to the area in the spring, however, the stallion returned to them healthy, leading McKinney to name the area “Cash’s Valley.”
