About the event
The Old Stone Fort was built during the Middle Woodland Period, 1,500-2,000 years ago. Native Americans used this area continuously for about 500 years, eventually leaving it abandoned. By the time European settlers arrived, it was unclear of what the area had been used for which resulted in it being misnamed as a fort. In 1966, the state of Tennessee purchased 400 acres of the Chumbley estate as the core of what is now Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park.
Join us for a guided hike through the park. We will enjoy the beautiful leaves here in Tennessee being in peak season and learn about the history of this area. Bring a packed lunch to enjoy as a picnic after the hike.
This event is for all ages, but we will have two rangers for our group so we will split into elementary and middle/high for the hike and education.
Elementary Student (K-5th)$0.00
Middle/High Student (6-12th)$0.00
