Fort Loudoun, Tennessee

It was but yesterday I was roaming this land. Fort Loudoun, TN is a peaceful, light and pleasant place where the visitor’s center is run by a wonderful staff. The lady at the desk is so nice that you can’t help but browse and buy several souvenirs. She spent time describing the land, the rivers, the Cherokees and everything else to us. I also have to mention the 14 year old fellow who described the fort to us. He is a history buff, loves the tales that he relates and dresses the part. He is one of a kind and I tip my hat to him.

Fort Loudoun was a British colonial fort in present-day Monroe County, Tennessee, near the towns of the Overhill Cherokee. The fort was reconstructed during the Great Depression and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965. Located near the fort is the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum.
