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
