“Excellent place to pit stop before hitting Roan Mtn./ Blue Ridge Parkway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2008

SSSHA is a nice stop in Elizabethton, TN. If you are interested in Revolutionary War and Native American history, then the interpretive center is worth a visit. The exhibits allow you to absorb information real easily. The site is part of the Overmountain Victory Trail, which accounts the revolutionary war in the ‘western front’. The fort located on the premises is worth a visit as well. There are no camping, but you are close to Davy Crockett Birthplace SP, Roan Mountain SP, and the BlueRidge Parkway: many places to lay your head.
