The East Tennessee History Center is a storehouse of the rich culture and history of East Tennessee. The establishment houses four 'historical treasures' the East Tennessee Historical Society,
the Museum of East Tennessee History
, the Knox County Archives and the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection
. In each of these 'treasures' you can find a detailed and organized collection of East Tennessee region's complete history and also government documents from as far back as 1792. The Center aims to make history fun for kids with its special programs designed for school students. Among such programs is a scavenger-hunt style 'hands-on' program, which gives an interesting color to the otherwise monotonous classroom learning atmosphere. The Center also organizes special events and programs for families and children and several in-classroom history projects. The East Tennessee History Center, thus, strives to keep the culture and heritage of the region alive and fun, so that it will be cherished by Tennesseans as well as visitors for generations to come.
