Tennessee Marble Research Continues

Last month, the CHP’s Dr. Susan Knowles joined with William Isom, Steve Cotham, Cherel Henderson, and Michele MacDonald at the Price Community Center in Hawkins County to gather information on the area’s marble history. Tennessee’s marble industry was the subject of Knowles’s dissertation and is featured in a new exhibit at the East Tennessee History Center. Last month’s event was held in partnership with the East Tennessee Historical Society and the Hawkins County Archives. Kingsport, Morristown, Mooresburg, and Rogersville residents and historical associations were well-represented. To read more about the event, look at this article from the Kingsport Times-News Online.
