Last week, Bruce and I took a drive up to beautiful East Tennessee. Rocky Mount
State Historic Site was built by William Cobb in 1772 and served as the
territorial capitol of the S.W. Territory between 1790 and 1792. Cobb
hosted First Governor of the S.W. Territory, William Blount here until
Blount moved to Knoxville. Our re-enactor and Executive Director Gary
Walrath, and his wife were very informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the
journey along the trails of Tennessee. The small building is the
kitchen, where a slave, Ruth, shared her skills and recipes. Loved it!
