In 1941 in Pulaski, TN this chapel of Gothic architectural design was built as the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Worship services stopped in 1984, when the Rock Church was sold to adjacent First Baptist Church.
As two separate branches of the Trail of Tears passed through Giles County, plans were made to create a memorial center. In 2002, the Baptist church donated the building to be the Interpretive Center. Later that year, the building was relocated three blocks away to its present location via a large trailer. The large area in front of the center is a giant map of the area tracing the Trail of Tears.
