This is an amazing tribute to the builder’s great-great-grandmother. People are still adding rocks and stones. You should be aware that there is no parking except along the road which doesn’t have much of a shoulder. Well worth the trip.

What a magnificent monument and memorial one man has built in commemoration of his great-great-grandmother Te-lah-nay who was part of the Yuchi Indian tribe. Makes a person humble to see and experience her walk to freedom. I hope they don't change anything and make it...More

This herculean effort took 27 years to complete. It is truly an inspired work that could benefit by just a few things: 1. A place to park. The grounds seem to have ample acreage that could be converted to a few parking spaces. If you...More

No cost, but you might want to bring a favorite rock or something to dedicate in honor of your relative or friend who passed on.
