If you're thinking of heading to the mountains this weekend, take a look at our artifact of the week: a Russell Briscoe painting titled “Mt. LeConte from Above Gatlinburg.” Briscoe's painting depicts an 1890 scene and was set from a then ski lodge above Gatlinburg. The painting, done in 1977, was a gift to the Payne family, friends of Briscoe who would picnic with the artist in the mountains.

The Big Creek area tops the list for me. The area offers an interesting mix of history, conservation, and natural beauty. Plus Midnight Hole is the best swimming hole in the entire of US of A!

Big Greenbrier is tops on my list

I have hiked Parson's Branch Road from the 129 end (The Dragon) to Cade's Cove Picnic Area. Not many people may be aware is that there used to be a fire tower, called Bunker Hill Fire Tower, on the 129 end. It's no longer there though.

Welcome everyone! If you have questions for Ranger Rexrode, feel free to comment below during the live broadcast, and we will get them over to Ranger Rexrode.

Congratulations on a great virtual tour of the Tellico Blockhouse! If other topics could be suggested.....would love to visit Ft Southwest Point (mentioned in this tour) and have it discussed in similar depth with Q &A. This was great! Hope there will be many more.

Hello Lisa!

What was found in the blockhouse well?

Wonderful job!

Hello Ranger Rexrode from Aunt Karen in Virginia!!

We love East Tennessee Historical Society !

John Sevier's son married a Cherokee woman didn't he?

Speak to the white traders and other white men who married into the Cherokee and stayed among them.

So cool

Nice

To celebrate International Nurses Day, check out our artifact of the week - a flip-top medicine case used by Sallie Phipps Miller McClure! Sallie was born in Marion, VA in 1876 but would eventually move to Hawkins County, TN. She assisted her uncle, Dr. Samuel M. Miller, occasionally at his practice in the Keystone Building on Knoxville’s Church Street. In her town of Rogersville, she was considered the community “nurse,” though she did not have a degree.

ETHS would like to thank all the nurses, near and far, for their continued hard work, especially during these times - thank you!

Do you have any stories of nurses in your family? Comment below!

Can't help but wonder what use strychnine would have in a medical kit!

East Tennessee Historical Society and Museum

Great museum with a LOT of stuff. Use to be free though. Costs $5 per person now. Well worth it though.
Quite informative, lots of artifacts, nice displays full of history. Museum officials are very nice and explain. Free entry but donations would be very welcome. Exhibits on mountain dew and local music scene in early days caught my eye.
East Tennessee Historical Society has all the updated resource for anyone who wants to create his or her very own family tree.
My youngest son Rain wanted to create his very own family tree.
He was able to complete his DNA and family tree , after a couple of years of research with his mom.
He was able to complete his family tree through ancestry data information located at the East Tennessee Historical Society.
My youngest son called his family tree, Sir Knight Rain Fields because he was able to find a very famous Knight in his ancestry history.
The ancestry data information is free to use at the East Tennessee Historical Society.
Great small little museum and you can see Davey Crocketts first rifle. Great museum if you like history... Check out the Mountain Dew exhibit until Jan 2020!
It's a fun place to go to learn about the history of East Tennessee. I think it was only $5 a ticket? You'll probably spend about an hour or two inside. Easy to walk around. Would recommend to anyone visiting Knoxville for the first time.
