http://www.tradingpath.org  "The Trading Path Preservation Association will preserve "The Indian Trading Path". The Trading Path was a corridor of river crossings linked by roads and trails between the Chesapeake Bay region and the Catawba, Cherokee, and other Indian towns in the Carolinas and Georgia. It served Indian commerce prior to European colonization, and it was the principle avenue for joining Red, Black and White cultures in the Southeastern Piedmont of what became the United States. Indian and, later, European settlements occupied key points along its course many of which persist to this day. Around them and at the sites of towns long abandoned and erased from the map lie much of the history of the peoples of the Piedmont. Preservation of the remnants of The Trading Path will secure archaeologically important materials as yet unstudied, create an unrivaled tool for education about the Piedmont's peoples and environment, and bring heritage tourism to numerous economically bypassed rural communities in the Trading Path Corridor."
