“Educational and interesting”
Reviewed September 25, 2009

This attraction includes a museum and a park with lakes, picnic areas, and several ancient mounds of various size. The museum houses artifacts from the surrounding area and from several tribes who inhabited the area, but it mainly focuses on the Cherokee. The museum itself is modeled on a Cherokee building and contains dozens of displays of carvings, jewelry, clothing, tools, animals, ceremonial items, as well as historical information on the mounds and local tribes. The arrowhead collection alone is vast and probably one of the largest in the area, easily numbering over a thousand arrowheads.
