MARBLE SPRINGS

July 7, 2009---Visiting the home of Tennesse's first governor, John Sevier, certainly takes a person back to a by-gone era. Living in the 18th century could not have been easy.

































David Daily, Marble Springs site manager, made this a most enjoyable attraction. He did an outstanding job of presenting the history of John Seviers. Stories of John's Indian fighting days and military career that led to his governorship for six terms and final days as a congressman kept our attention. At the end of the tour David gave a demonstration of throwing the Indian war club at a target.
