Indian Mound Love Tragedy Site

The marker says this is a mound where the townhouse was?

The historical marker avoids mentioning the legend of Sautee and Nacoochee, star-crossed Chickasaw-Cherokee lovers who died together and were supposedly among the 75 bodies disinterred from the mound in 1915.

We drove by this Indian Mound on the way back from Sautee. As stated before, you can not get close to it and parking is not available. There is a historical marker close by.

No place to stop and get out. You are separated by cows and a fence. It's a drive by.

Nacoochee Indian mound is very easy to access from Helen, but unfortunately the large fence prevents getting any closer.
