Natchez Trace National Parkway - Art

The parkway is 444 miles from Natchez, MS, crossing the NW corner of Alabama and ending at Nashville, TN. Of course, you can drive it either direction and there are a number of entrance/exit roads. Take several days to make the drive to get the most out of it. There are a large number of pullouts and overlooks all with information about the history at each stop. There are Indian Mounds from the earliest years, travelers from the 1700s & 1800s moving westward, history of the Kaintucks aka boatmen which carried trade down river by boat and then sold the boat and made the walk back. In addition, it was a mail route by horseback and unknown confederate gravestones. Andrew Jackson and his troops traveled the trace, Meriwether Lewis died at a stopover on the trace and is buried there. That is just a touch of the history you will get wrapped up in if you take the time and relish all of the history.
