The Conestee Lost Settlement Marker
Dedicated to a lost settlement of the Cherokee tribe. The former Conestee town, or also referred to as Kana’sta, was believed to have been abandoned between the 1750-1770's. Cherokee legend says these people were invited to a secret, flourishing village located within the mountains and they alone of all the Cherokee Nation escaped the long wars and suffering that followed the settlers' invasion of the mountains.
