Why: New Echota is one of the most significant Cherokee Indian sites in the nation and was where the tragic “Trail of Tears” officially began. Today, visitors can see 12 original and reconstructed buildings, including the Council House, Court House, Print Shop, Missionary Samuel Worcester’s home, and an 1805 store, as well as outbuildings such as smoke houses, corn cribs and barns.
Tour Fees will be covered by NGAL. We will begin soon after 10:00 AM at CGCL so we can conclude our meeting and drive over to the historic site and begin the tour.
