Travel back in time at Fort Loudoun, a colonial fort reconstructed on the original site. Built during the French and Indian War (1754-1763) the fort was named for John Campbell, the 4th Earl of Loudoun.
Visitors today can see several garrison buildings as they would have been during the fort’s operation. The fort hosts several Garrison Weekends when it comes to life with costumed soldiers re-enacting the everyday activities in a 1750’s Fort Loudoun. For a schedule of events visit www.fortloudoun.com.
After visiting Fort Loudoun, travel just minutes away to the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum and learn about the man who created the Cherokee system of writing. The museum also has information on the Trail of Tears and the Cherokee people who escaped this brutal march by fleeing into the mountains.
