Rare Property Joining The Natchez Trace With Water And Mature Timber


This property lies in the Big Swan Creek Valley one mile east of where the Little Swan converges to form Swan Creek. The University of Memphis Archeology Department discovered an ancient Indian travel trail near the property.  Early settlers used the Trace to return north after floating their goods to market in New Orleans. It was later converted to a military transit route during the War of 1812. Andrew Jackson’s volunteers traveled this road en route to New Orleans for the famous final battle of that conflict. After returning to Tennessee, he dismissed his victorious troops on Rabbit Knob just 800 yards east of my property. Some of the owner’s ancestors were probably members of that band as his family has been in this valley since 1790 on land grants from service in the Revolutionary War. Later in that century, phosphate deposits were discovered in the hills around Rabbit Knob. The mining of this ore expanded over time. By 1900 this was the largest underground phosphate mine in the world. The town of Gordonsburg was founded to support the mine and grew to some 5,000 inhabitants. When the whitetail deer were reintroduced in this area by the state of Tennessee, the original herd was released on this property and has prospered to the phenomenal levels we see today. Adjoining the famous Natchez Trace this property has long road frontage and would be the perfect location for your dream home or a great location for a convenience store. There is a large spring fed creek in the center of the property and mature timber. The is a long history of producing trophy bucks and large gobblers.
