paws Natchez Trace Parkway

The Natchez Trace Parkway closely follows an ancient salt-lick-to-grazing-pasture migratory route of the American Bison.
Native Americans, following the "traces" further improved this "walking trail" for commerce between villages.
By traversing the tops of the hills, humans avoided the endless climbing and descending or being caught in a valley if attacked by predators.

Plans for a modern roadway began in the 1930s as one of the many projects of the Civilian Conservation Corps to give tribute to the original Natchez Trace. Construction began in 1939....Daughters of the American Revolution began planting markers and monuments. After many years (owing to a lack of funds) the 444-mile stretch running from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee was complete. It opened May 21, 2005
