Port Royal State Historic Park {Tennessee}

On our way home from Missouri, we decided to make a stop at Port Royal State Park to get out and stretch our legs. This area became an important point in Tennessee history as it was a regional tobacco inspection point and flatboat check point. It no longer serves in the tobacco industry, now it a small and beautiful park set next to the river. We walked down the short trail across the bridge and back enjoying the soft sounds of the water making it way through the valley. While not very large, this park made for a perfect resting place during our drive and we were glad to have seen it and learned a little of its history.
