Old Stone Fort State Park near Manchester, Tennessee, is an archaeological site over 2,000 years old.  Old Stone Fort is a 40-acre tract of flat land completely surrounded by bluffs and gorges cut by the Duck and Little Duck rivers.  In spite of the name, it is believed that Old Stone Fort was a sacred ceremonial site rather than a fortress.

Betsy and I visited Old Stone Fort State Park in August, 2006.  There are three small waterfalls in the rivers surrounding the park.  The largest of these is Big Falls.  The drawing above shows one of the drops in Big Falls.

The picture on which this drawing was based is shown below.
