The Fountain Inn Museum invites the public to attend a free program about “the Cherokee Path” presented by Dennis Chastain of SC Wildlife magazine. The program will be held at the museum, located at 102 Depot Street in downtown Fountain Inn, on Thursday, November 9 at 7:00 p.m.
Dennis Chastain will discuss the Cherokee Path, an old colonial era Indian trail that once ran all the way from downtown Charles Town in South Carolina to Fort Loudon in Tennessee. He’ll also discuss what is known about old Native American paths and roads in the South Carolina upcountry and William Moultrie, one of the original surveyors in this area.
Dennis Chastain is an award-winning outdoor writer, interpretive naturalist and modern-day explorer. He has been writing feature articles for South Carolina Wildlife magazine and other outdoor publications for more than 20 years.
The program is part of the Fountain Inn Museum’s “Hooked on History” speaker series.
