Red Clay State Historic Park Exhibits

Red Clay in southern Bradley County, Tennessee served as the seat of the Cherokee national government after Georgia laws essentially made it illegal for the Cherokee to continue to hold government at their capital in New Echota, Georgia. Eleven general councils were held at Red Clay between 1832 and 1837 before the Cherokee were forcibly removed from their homes in 1838. Today, the former Red Clay council grounds is a state park.
