KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - If you're a history buff, the Marble Springs Historic Site was the place to be this weekend.
The east Knox County site hosted it's "Living History Weekend," a chance to celebrate the state's first governor, John Sevier.
History detectives young and old got a chance to experience what life was like during Sevier's time in the 18th century.
The event featured everything from cooking demonstrations, to showcasing the different tools that were used for wood work. Also, clothing that was popular back in the 1700's was once again the popular attire.
"It's vital. Especially as we are becoming more technologically progressive. It's very important for adults and children and the like to understand and the early history and where we come from," said Anna Chappelle, the site's executive director.
There are two living history weekends each year. Marble Springs is located on Governor John Sevier Highway.
The site is open Wednesday through Sunday.
