Preserving Brown's Tavern For Years To Come

Nov 13, 2020

Brown’s Tavern - sitting on nine acres near Brown’s Ferry - is older than the City of Chattanooga, with a history that includes the Trail of Tears and the Civil War.

Recently, the American Battlefield Trust purchased the site - agreeing to transfer it and two other properties to National Park Partners.
