Old Stone Church
This historic building has been around since 1837. The church was used as a hospital during the Civil War. Ownership has changed over the years but is now owned by the Catoosa County Historical Society. It is currently a museum of architectural significance because of its sandstone construction materials from a local quarry. In 1979, the church was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Elsie Holmes Nature Park
This park has over two miles of hiking trails with a pavilion for gatherings, restrooms, and an office. There is also a trail for strollers and people with any disabilities. It’s a great choice for an easy family-friendly weekend hike.
