From Monday, June 17 to Friday, June 21, Marble Springs State Historic Site will hold its History Alive! Summer Day Camp for kids entering grades 4 through 6 in the fall.

For five incredible hands-on days, children will be immersed in East Tennessee history on 35 beautiful acres of urban wilderness that were once a part of Governor John Sevier’s farm. Traditional skills, crafts, music, and games of the frontier settlers and Native Americans will be taught by area experts.

The cost of the camp is $100 per child. Children should bring a lunch, but an afternoon snack will be provided. Registration is limited and pre-registration is required. Call 865-573-5508 or email for more information.

Marble Springs State Historic site is the farm and last remaining home of John Sevier, Revolutionary War hero at the Battle of Kings Mountain and first governor of Tennessee. The site is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 to 5:00 pm and on Sundays from 12:00-5:00 pm. Guided tours of the cabins are available for a fee.

The site is located at 1220 W. Gov. John Sevier Highway, Knoxville, TN 37920. For more information visit our website at, email, or call 865-573-5508.

Marble Springs is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Tennessee Historical Commission, and supplemented by additional funds provided by Knox County and the Governor John Sevier Memorial Association.
