Interspersed in the landscape and along the boardwalk are quotations, stories, and anecdotes illuminating fascinating facets of the city's history. Exhibit "pieces" occur as two elements, secret history stones and secret history pavers. The stones occur as surprises within the landscape with text etched into native Tennessee marble and limestone of varied shapes. These stones tell an interpretive story in a short and concise format, leading the reader to pavers located close by along the boardwalk path which are engraved with names and titles connoting a sense of importance to our region's history. Together, the secret history stones and boardwalk pavers provide guests to the Volunteer Landing boardwalk the opportunity to participate in a history "scavenger-hunt" that is both entertaining and educational.

For those traversing the Volunteer Landing boardwalk at a walking pace, attention to these "secret history" modes are drawn through slight alterations in the color and pattern of paving at the exhibit's location.
