This will be a ride along what we believe might be an ancient Native-American trail marked by over a dozen living artifacts! This event which will feature a presentation about Indian Trail Trees by Mountain Stewards member, Bob Gaut, at the historic Lunenburg Schoolhouse will be capped by visits on both ends to the Melbourne History Museum in the morning and the Calico Rock Museum in the afternoon! Historian and EIC/ESC Crew Member, Freda Cruse Hardison will be sharing some stories from the period of the Trail of Tears. The Trail of Trees marks the route of the Trail of Tears traveled by the Benge Detachment and probably others through Izard County during the period. Along the trail, we'll visit the original County Seat of Izard County, Athens, where at least one group of 1500 camped during the Trail of Tears.
We'll start the day at the Melbourne History Museum at 8:30 am!
We'll end the day at the Calico Rock Museum!
Here is a tentative schedule of the event!
