The Trail of Tears at the Hiwassee River Heritage Center

Amy Kostine, the CHP’s Trail of Tears project historian, is assisting the Hiwassee River Heritage Center in the development of new exhibits, following up on her significant contributions to the center’s original exhibits a few years ago. Fieldwork coordinator Savannah Grandey will be assisting with the project. The interpretive center is a certified site on the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail. Fort Cass, the U.S. military headquarters for the Trail of Tears removal, was located in present-day Charleston. Exhibits at the interpretive center also explore the Civil War history of the area and the wartime significance of the Hiwassee River.
