This is a site of painful memory, a place of upheaval. Decatur was just one stop on a deadly journey over 1,000 miles — the forced removal of the Cherokee people from the Tennessee Valley.
Along the edge of the Tennessee River, this town bore witness to the Trail of Tears. From 1837 to 1838, boats and trains carried 2,300 Cherokee people through Decatur on their way to Indian Territory.
Three witness structures from this time still stand in Decatur. The Burleson-Hinds-McEntire House, the Dancy-Polk House House, and the Old State Bank.
