Pruning the Parks: New Echota Marker National Memorial (1933-1950) Commemorated the Cherokee Nation Seat of Government
National Parks Traveler
Congress authorized New Echota Marker National Memorial in 1930, the NPS acquired it in 1933, and Congress abolished it on September 21, 1950. It’s a pity so few have ever heard of the marker, now owned by the state of Georgia, because it commemorates a remarkable place and events that are well worth remembering.
