  • This park is the perfect setting for this annual gathering. Parking, facilities, vendors, and the dancing, music, and storytellers could not have been better. Entry fee was only $10 for adults...

  • March 2021 - Cherokee Trail Of Tears Commemorative Park and Heritage Center on 100 Trail of Tears Dr, Hopkinsville, KY 42240. This museum is located where more than ten thousand Cherokee Indians traveled on the Trail of Tears. Three Indian chiefs died on the Trail of Tears in 1838. TWO of them are buried on this site in the cemetery located by the museum. Their names were White Path and Fly Smith. The curator of the museum, Kristina, was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide for the group of ladies & children I brought to see the museum. The museum has Native American Indian exhibits from all over the United States. Utterly fascinating and one of Hopkinsville hidden historical gems.
  • This is truly a beautifully spiritual place! So many quirky things happen everytime I'm here and today was the best of them. I always come to be a part of the Trail Of Tears Powwow, last year was canceled but this year its on and I'm really looking forward to going!! This site and others like it is extremely Important to the History of Native American Indians, education is key to learning truths and knowing that a lot of what we were taught in our History Books is wrong. I'm so happy to see that it's well taken care of, there needs to be more places like this...
