Nested near a bountiful big spring in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains you’ll find Tuscumbia, Alabama. The French first settled the area near the Tennessee River in the 1700’s only to have their town destroyed in 1786. The Chickasaw Indians moved here next building their town near the spring. They were soon followed by the Michael Dickson Family circa 1815. Tuscumbia along the Natchez Trace Parkway is growing today with the restoration of many of its old downtown historic buildings.
