Cherokee in Colbert County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Something to Chew on
Natchez Trace Parkway
Already a Chickasaw leader and successful businessman, Levi Colbert enhanced his influence with a stand that he owned and operated here at Buzzard Roost Spring. Trace travelers no doubt talked about Leviís stand. It was nicer than most, and offered respite from the miles of footsteps that defined a Trace journey.
