Our Mission

The mission of the Governor John Sevier Memorial Association is to preserve the historical and natural landscape of Marble Springs State Historic Site for future generations and to inspire learning about the life and times of John Sevier through creative engagement.

Our vision is to make Marble Springs a retreat where children and adults are inspired by history and nature and where its neighbors come together to learn, share, and protect the rich resources that define Marble Springs.

Marble Springs State Historic Site is managed through an agreement between the Tennessee Historical Commission and the Governor John Sevier Memorial Association (GJSMA), which consists of an active membership and board of directors. 

It is the policy of the GJSMA to ensure that no citizen shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity. All employees of the GJSMA are expected to consider, respect and observe this policy in their daily work and duties. If a citizen approaches you with a question or complaint, direct him or her to the Executive Director at 865-573-5508 or P.O. Box 20195, Knoxville, TN 37940.

Marble Springs State Historic Site is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Tennessee Historical Commission.
