Meriwether Lewis, Of Lewis And Clark Fame, Is Buried In Rural Tennessee

It may not come as a shock that musicians such as Johnny Cash and Elvis are buried in the great state of Tennessee, but most folks don’t realize that along a quiet country road is a memorial to Meriwether Lewis of the Lewis and Clark expedition. His story is long and meandering, but a visit to his memorial is perhaps one of the best-hidden gems in the area. Expect a picnic area and hiking trail when you get there, and make sure you read every plaque. Meriwether Lewis was more fascinating than you may think!

You can learn a little more about the gravesite along the Natchez Trace with a visit to its official website. There’s nothing quite like experiencing local history, and Tennessee has it in spades.
