Some of our team members were born and raised in Christian Co, KY.  One has roots that run back to the Cherokee Indians.  One of our favorite things about Christian Co is the rich history of the area, including: 

The Footsteps of the Cherokee

As you walk among the sacred land in the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park, you will feel the energy of the Cherokee people. During the 1830s, the Cherokee were among the Native American peoples forced to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to the newly designated “Indian Country” territory in present-day Oklahoma.

Experience the exhibits and artifacts in the Trail of Tears Heritage Center, a log cabin dating back to the removal period. Hear stories and history as told by guide Kristina Scott, who is of Cherokee heritage herself, and her team of volunteers. Commemorate the two Cherokee chiefs who passed away during their time in Hopkinsville by visiting the gravesites of Chiefs Whitepath and Fly Smith inside the park, one of the only verified burial sites along the Trail of Tears.

And if you’re looking to learn more about Native American traditions and culture, set your return visit for the annual Trail of Tears Pow Wow, held the weekend after Labor Day.
