Unto These Hills

An Evening of Legends and History Under the Stars

The story of the Cherokee people through the eons, through the zenith of their power, through the heartbreak of the Trail of Tears, to the present day.

One of the longest-running outdoor dramas in the U.S., Unto These Hills has thrilled and entertained more than six million people since 1950. Recently rewritten to better reflect the Cherokee's true history and culture, the play is a 'must see' when visiting the Smokies.
