Heritage Center Museum

We spent a good while in the Heritage Center Museum – as is my way :-). After the display from the Townsend Archaeological Project I enjoyed the rest of the Native American Gallery, with details about how the Cherokee lived day to day in that area. Looking at the weapons reminded me of the exhibits we saw at the Native American Studies Center in Lancaster. which was the first time I can remember seeing this word for the spear.

From the Native American Gallery we moved on to the side of the museum dedicated to the pioneers who settled in the area around Pigeon Forge. There were many artifacts on loan from the National Park Service, not surprisingly. So interesting.
