For Sale: 2+ Acre Compound Adjacent to Entrance to Track Rock Terrace Complex!
Location: Latitude – 34°52’59.9″N ~ Longitude -83°52’36.8″W
Track Rock Gap Road ~ Blairsville (Union County) Georgia
This is a surprise. A two+ acre terrace containing a comfortable house and outbuildings, directly north of the access trail for the Track Rock Terrace Complex, is for sale. It is directly across the paved county road from the Track Rock petroglyphs. The tract is the only level land close to the terrace complex and so undoubtedly is an archaeological site itself. The dirt road leading into the woods in the lower part of the property is an old wagon road, dating from the 1800s.
As those, who have hiked this archaeological zone know (A) It is very difficult to find parking on weekends in the fall, winter and spring. (B) There is absolutely no mention of this world class archaeological site at any Visitors Center or Chamber of Commerce, even though it should be the premier tourist attraction of the region. (C) In any other developed nation in the WORLD, the Track Rock Archaeological Zone would have long ago been made into a national park. (D) No museum has been built at any of the Native American stone structure sites in the Southeast.
When the public sector behaves in such a myopic manner, the situation creates an opportunity for an enlightened entrepreneur. If you get my gist.
The Track Rock Terrace Complex is identical to Highland Maya terrace complexes in Chiapas State, Mexico, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and western Belize. One agricultural terrace was radiocarbon dated in 2001. It contained terra preta (biochar) soil and found to have been constructed in 1018 AD. However, potsherds in this soil included Napier Style potsherds, which are known to date from 600 AD to 900 AD.
