Standing Stone State Park has an historical background

Standing Stone State Park and Forest, which has been developed into one of the state’s most ideal vacation spots, has an historical background peopled with red warriors and hunters who roamed the Cumberland Plateau long before Columbus discovered America.

The name “Standing Stone” was taken from the fact that Indians placed large standing stones thirty miles apart, in an east and west line from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Mississippi River as a boundary line, provided by a treaty, to mark the hunting grounds between five Southern tribes and the nations to the north.
