2. McGlamery Stand
In frontier language, a stand was an inn or a trading post-- sometimes both— usually located on a well-traveled route. Such a place was established on the Old Natchez Trace, near here, in1849 by John McGlamery. Although the stand did not outlast the Civil War, the name did. The nearby village is still known as McGlamery Stand. United States Department of the Interior National Park Service
