What is a Trail Tree?  Many years ago, the people native to this area, navigated through the Mountains, using an elaborate system of trail markings. The trunks of oak trees were purposely bent to point in a given direction, indicating, food, water, safety, etc.  So, if you purchase land with one of these trees, please, do not cut it down, as it is a part of our local heritage.  For more information, read the book: "Indian Trail Trees" by: local author, Elaine Jordan. 

Special Thanks, to local artist, Pegi Shaw, for designing our logo!

In Loving Memory
Of our dear friend Elaine Jordan. 

She was a funny, spunky little lady. Although she endured great physical challenges she always kept a great attitude.  She was a very talented author and lecturer.  I know she will be honored through her legacy of the trail trees.  She will be greatly missed.
