CHEROKEE HERITAGE SITES IN SOUTHEAST TENNESSEE Native American towns and villages thrived for thousands of years along the rivers and within the valleys of Southeast Tennessee. One of the tribes that inhabited the region was the Cherokee, who by 1700 claimed land that included parts of Southeast Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. However, by 1837, 46,000 Native Americans had been forcibly removed from their lands East of the Mississippi River through what became known as the Trail of Tears. Despite this tragic chapter in American history, the Cherokee people today live on as a renewed, invigorated nation – and their legacy continues in this region through the natural, historical and cultural landscape. Historically significant sites continue to emerge, offering a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage of the people who lived in Southeast Tennessee prior to European settlement. Download the guide to Cherokee Heritage sites in Southeast Tennessee at SoutheastTennessee.com or use the free Travel Southeast Tennesssee mobile app to learn more about important historical sites and stories relating to Cherokee history in the region.

a century of coal mining in the community.

IN DEVELOPING THE TRAIL.

Many communities in Southeast Tennessee were created and defined by mining and related industries. Coal mining, copper and iron production, quarrying and metals manufacturing once formed the backbone of the region’s economy – and the lives of the men and women who labored in those industries. Today, remnants of these historic mining industries are hidden within the landscape, tokens of their significant impact on communities and the natural landscape.
