Gadsden, AL Noccalula Falls T-Shirt by Hometown Heritage
Noccalula Falls in Gadsden, Alabama
Many years ago, a beautiful Cherokee princess named Noccalula lived near the area then known as Black Creek Falls. Famed for both her gentle demeanor and astounding beauty, the young woman’s father, the tribe’s chief, soon began to look for a husband for his daughter. The girl was in love with a man from her own tribe, a handsome youth renowned for his bravery and skills in battle, but he had almost nothing to give to her father in return. The chief turned down the man’s offer, instead opting for a neighboring chief who promised a large number of blankets, horses and wampum for Noccalula’s hand. She pleaded with her father to change his mind, but he ordered her to marry the chief. The love of her life left the tribe, unable to see the woman he loved marry another, and an agreement was reached with the neighboring chief. Noccalula’s marriage day came, and she was dressed in the customary wedding robes while both tribes began to celebrate. She soon slipped away and found herself at the waterfall, the waters seemingly calling her name. She paused to admire her surroundings before jumping into the chasm below. To commemorate Noccalula’s sacrifice in the name of love, the Gadsden Woman’s Club commissioned sculptor Suzanne Silvercruys to create a nine-foot bronze statue of Noccalula that was dedicated in 1969. Noccalula is forever taking her last steps off the edge of the falls that are now her namesake.
