Old Hickory Lake shoreline project addresses erosion nearby slave cemetery
A headstone glimmers in the early morning sunlight as maintenance barges are positioned to install riprap on the shoreline of Old Hickory Lake July 22, 2021 to stop erosion from inching closer to the historic Rock Castle Slave Cemetery in Hendersonville, Tennessee. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District's Maintenance Support Team reshaped the embankment and laid down riprap July 19-22, 2021 where water had been undercutting the shoreline.
