the Indian Heritage Center

This Eternal Flame is dedicated to the Creek Indians and all Native Americans that were gathered together in Fort Mitchell, AL in 1836 before being taken to the Oklahoma Territory on what is called the 'Trail of Tears'.

The names of the 8,522 Creek Indians who were forced to leave this area are engraved on one of four plaques.

Note: Not really sure why they call this a heritage 'center' as there is not a 'center' here. Maybe they have plans to build one some day.
