Interpretive Center Phase 4
Phase 4 will be the actual completion of the interior of the Trail of Tears Interpretive Center. The design of this unique interpretive presentation will include
- Multimedia productions utilizing still images and video, both with narration and music, that recreate the experience of the Benge Group and the Bell Group as they travel from their accessorial land to present day Oklahoma.
- Interpretive displays which include a series of intimate exhibitions consisting of walls and dividers inspired by traditional Cherokee structures.
- Interpretive retail store that continues the Native American ambience and features books and crafts focusing on the Cherokee tribe, Trail of Tears, and Giles County stories.
- Trail of Tears sculpture that engages visitors in the heartbreak of the Cherokee walking west of the two routes that cross in Pulaski.
- Congressman David Crockett Memorial that will honor the local war hero who vehemently fought for the rights of Native Americans.
- Access to the Pulaski greenway system, which connects to an overlook of the original Richland Creek Bridge site (original bridge footings remain) used by both the Bell Group and Benge Group.
We are continually seeking help and assistance from local businesses and organizations. We are kindly accepting donations to further the progress and accelerate the completion of Phase 4 of the Interpretive Center. Your support will greatly be appreciated. Remember, all donations are tax deductible.
