These Incredible Places Around Tennessee Were Once Part Of The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad is operated as a pivotal system of escape during the harsh realities of the Civil War, and has made an indelible mark on our nation’s history. There are multiple “stops” that are publicized across the nation, many more closer to the eastern seaboard than here in Tennessee. There are two historic Underground Railroad stops here in the Volunteer State, and you can find them both on the western side of the state. Have you heard of these stories?

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
