On Tuesday, April 5, 2011, Marble Springs was the setting for a 'Picnic at Marble Springs', which was presented as part of the Knoxville Symphony League's Annual Elegant Dining Series. This was the first time in recent memory that Marble Springs served as the venue for such an event. We were pleased to be a part of this wonderful day & are always happy to partner with local organizations that are dedicated to supporting the arts throughout Knoxville & Knox County. Patrons were invited to enjoy the beautiful outdoor scenery, savor the tastes of the fabulous lunch menu (provided by the always fantastic Rex Bradford Jones) & tour the historic structures. During their guided tour, guests learned the history of Marble Springs State Historic Site & John Sevier.
We enjoyed hosting this wonderful luncheon & look forward to seeing many of our new friends at future events!
