About the event
Explore one of America’s greatest mysteries…the Mississippians!
Over 1,000 years ago, these pre-historic Native Americans built a village on the land now occupied by Travellers Rest. The Mississippians built a complex culture and then one day their civilization disappeared. Archaeologists are still trying to understand and unravel the complex history of the Mississippians. Explore the mystery and learn more about Tennessee’s first people.
