The Center recently welcomed visitors from the National Trails Intermountain Region of the National Park Service. Director Dr. Carroll Van West, Trail of Tears historian Amy Kostine, and fieldwork coordinator Savannah Grandey showed our guests around some of the Trail of Tears witness sites and road segments throughout Middle and East Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. These sites are part of our ongoing partnership with the NPS to survey and document the existing Trail of Tears-era landscape in the region. Here, the crew is pictured walking along the National Register-listed Kelly’s Ferry Road and Crossing in Marion County, Tennessee.
