An ancient Cherokee mound in Franklin has now officially been turned over to a local nonprofit. BPR attended the commemoration of the transfer.
Locals gathered in a pavilion on the Greenway near the Nikwasi Mound to mark the sacred site’s handover to the Nikwasi Initiative. Bob McCollum is on its board.
“Good morning,” says McCullom. The crowd responds: “Good morning!”
“What a great day that has been a long time in coming,” he says.
