Smoky Mountains Art 
"Gov. John Sevier's Place - Marble Springs"

22" x 29" Watercolor

Artist Ken Schulz
Smoky Mountain resident John Sevier
became the governor of Tennessee.

Marble Springs, the farm home owned by John Sevier, is a state shrine today, preserving a historic past. Its first cabin served as a trading post and protection for early settlers south of the French Broad River. The cabin was enlarged and other buildings added when in 1796 John Sevier became the first governor of Tennessee. An old plow leans idle against a small tree and the cabin stands empty on a small rise as the sun is setting as if closing the curtain of shadow on an historic past.
