  • Tom's son Trace will continue on with the story of the wall. Go. It's a really unique and peaceful experience.  more »
  • Lot of History to learn about here. Very interesting and a peaceful place to see. Children, adults, and teens can learn so much.  more »
  • Easy to get to - northbound on Natchez Trace at mile marker 338 exit on CR 8 and you are there. Tom Hendrix is rather infirm (age 87) but he is an engaging host if available (recent surgery). There is...  more »

  • This amazing place was built entirely by Tom Hendrix in honor of his Native American grandmother who was forced to Oklahoma by the US government in the 1830's. She then walked back to Alabama and lived in the area until she died as an old woman. Each stone upon stone commemorates her journey, and the journeys of other Native Americans displaced by the US Government. It is definitely worth a visit, and we got to hear the story from Mr Hendrix himself. What a pleasure!
  • This is one of the most beautiful, and special places on earth. Mr. Tomorrow is a very special man, and story teller. We can learn so much from him, and the native Americans.
  • You will need a navigator to find this place. However a very spiritual experience and amazing dedication.
  • The Wichahpi Commemorative Stone Wall is currently the largest unmortared wall in the United States. Built by hand by Tom Hendrix to memorialize his Native American great-great grandmother, Te-lah-nay. It represents one woman’s courageous journey back to her homeland after being relocated to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. She spent five years retracing her steps, eventually making her way back to her Yuchi tribe’s native land near present day Florence, Alabama. She is the only documented Native American to return. The wall is a place of spirituality and ensures that the legends will never fade. Thank you Mr. Hendrix, you are a testament to your ancestors.
  • Can't decide which is more beautiful. The site, the story or the man's dedication.
