located in the heart of Sequatchie Country, Tennessee. Come explore the remains of 268
beehive coke ovens used in the early 1900's to convert mountain coal into industrial coke,
a product used to smelt iron ore. This wooded park, found at the base of the Cumberland
Plateau in the beautiful Sequatchie Valley, is open daily for self guided tours.
