The Old Stone Fort, a name given to a first century ceremonial mound enclosure by early Tennessee settlers, is found on a narrow promontory between the Duck and Little Duck rivers. This sacred site is one of the largest and most complex hilltop enclosures in the South. Thought to be used well into the 5th century, the fort is surrounded by a low stone wall, occupying 50 acres, and measuring a mile and a quarter in circumference.
