Marble Springs Historic Site

Marble Springs State Historic Site is  also known as the Gov. John Sevier Home.   Born in Virginia in 1745, John Sevier made a name for himself as a Revolutionary War Hero, frontier militia commander, and was elected to serve as the first Governor of the State of Tennessee (1796). Sevier named his farm Marble Springs because of the Tennessee Rose Marble that was quarried on site and the natural springs that flowed on the property.
