Established in 1976 as a community bicentennial project, this park is significant because it is both the final resting place for several early settlers and decision makers and it is one of the last undeveloped areas that was part of the State of North Carolina, State of Franklin at various times, Territory South of the Ohio River, The State of Tennessee, County Sevier and the City of Sevierville. Improvements were made to the park in 2009 through the joint efforts of: City of Sevierville Spencer Clack Chapter of Daughters of The American Revolution Sevierville Garden Club Sevier County Public Library

Erected 2009.
