Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area

We often refer to Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area as the place where “Our Heritage Comes to Life,” and that it does!  With thanks to a host of volunteers who love to share our remarkable history, we are able to present educational family programs throughout the year. 

The theme that draws us all together is the history of this place; a history so important that it was an integral component of the growth of our fledgling nation in the late 18th century. For more history of this area, see the Park Info page.
