Knox Heritage and the East Tennessee Preservation Alliance are proud to partner once again with many businesses, organizations and individuals to bring the East Tennessee Preservation Power Summit to our region on November 4, in Morristown. This one day “power summit” is an evolution of the popular East Tennessee Preservation Conference designed to better fit busy schedules while still serving as an impactful educational and networking event.

For the past seven years, the conference has been hosted by communities throughout our region: Townsend, Rugby, Jonesborough, Gatlinburg, Maryville, Oak Ridge and Knoxville. Attendees include preservation professionals, architects, planners, tourism professionals, government and community leaders, economic developers, real estate professionals and others who have found that advanced knowledge of historic preservation principles and practices has value. It is a great event for learning, networking and experiencing historic sites distinctive to the host community. Historic preservation is more important than ever to the places we call home!

This year, the Summit will be held in Morristown at the historic Rose Center. Attendees will benefit from education sessions focused on proven historic preservation applications, heritage tourism and downtown revitalization. “Preservation Crash Courses” will be introduced for the first time as well, as a “Preservation Master Class.” Historic site tours will visit Crockett Tavern, General Longstreet’s Headquarters and Bethesda Church. The event will end with the East Tennessee Preservation Awards reception at historic Arrow Hill, a c. 1859 residence once used as headquarters by both sides during the Civil War.
