Marble Springs was the farmstead of John Sevier. Tennessee's first governor (1796-1801 and 1803-1809). While Sevier used the farm as a retreat where he entertained guests, it was originally a frontier station used by immigrants on the trace from the mouth of the French Broad to the lower settlements of Nine Mile and Pistol Creeks.
