About Marble Springs

    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.

    Marble Springs is the last home and farm of John Sevier. He served six terms as Tennessee governor in Knoxville, the state's first capital city.

    Marble Springs is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, notable for its connection to John Sevier and its early Tennessee architecture. It is a certified wildlife habitat and is a significant educational resource for thousands of area school children for more than 50 years. It is the recipient of an Award of Excellence and Commendation from the Tennessee Association of Museums.
