Trail of Tears historic route signs unveiled

Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Soddy-Daisy, and Lakesite, in a joint effort with the National Park Service (NPS), have installed signs and markers that retrace the Trail of Tears through this area. The new signs were unveiled last week during an event at Ross’s Landing in Chattanooga. Following the dedication, guests were invited to a hike of Brown’s Ferry Federal Road, a section of the Trail of Tears located at 701 Moccasin Bend Road. The unveiling supports the continuing effort by the NPS to preserve and develop the national historic trail for increased public awareness and use.
