Virtual Travel Video: Chieftains

Join Chumley on location in Northwest Georgia — near the ancient ferry across the Oostanaula River.

It’s the site of an impressive mansion that goes by the name of “Chieftains” — once the home of one of the most conflicted Cherokee leaders of them all. His “white” name was Major Ridge. And his Cherokee name translated into Pathkiller. His natural talents made him a leader among his people. His connections in the “white world” gave him celebrity and ownership of the lucrative ferry on the Oostanaula. And that’s where we’ll pick up his story.
