Bradley Nature Preserve at Alexander's Ford
County Line Road/Gray's Chapel Church Road
The Preserve was acquired through multiple grants to help tell the story of the Overmountain Men, a rag-tag group of area militia that chased down a British general during the Revolutionary War and won a pivotal battle at Kings Mountain.
The route the militia took during that campaign passed right trough the Preserve property. In fact, the old road bed that is now the Preserve's main trail is believed to be the exact location of their trip.
Today the Preserve is a quiet country respite that includes picnic areas, a trail to the Green River, and a preserved mature forest.
