Rose Center for the Arts
Any visit to eastern Tennessee should involve a tour of the Rose Center for the Arts. Located inside a 19th-century Victorian schoolhouse, the Rose Center is the epicenter for art, culture, and history in Morristown. Each fall in Morristown, the Rose Center for the Arts hosts the biggest festival in town – the Mountain Makins. Check it out and help celebrate a rich history of Appalachian culture.
Built in 1892, the schoolhouse where the Rose Center for the Arts is found was the first ever co-ed high school in Morristown. It's named for Judge James G. Rose, a local Civil War veteran. Up until 1975, the building had operated as a school, but was shut down due to lack of funds. Public art supports and enthusiasts were able to raise funds to re-introduce the building as the Rose Center for the Arts in the same year.
