Fort Southwest Point was a federal frontier outpost at what is now Kingston, Tennessee. Constructed in 1797 and garrisoned by federal soldiers until 1811, the fort served as a major point of interaction between the Cherokee and the United States government as well as a way station for early migrants travelling between Knoxville and Nashville.
Fort Southwest Point is the only pioneer-era fort reconstructed on its original site in the state and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Admission is free. Dogs on a leash are allowed.
