Historic Roads & Trails
Centuries before the European settlers set foot on Tennessee soil, these mountainsides and riverbanks were home to the Cherokee, Yuchi, Koasati, Shawnee and Chickasaw Indians.
Forcibly removed in the 1800s, many of these Tennessee natives lost their families, their homes and their lives. Their lives and legacies are preserved in the monuments and museums spread across the state.
