This archway is built from bricks made by the slaves of William Rober McCroskey in 1842. They are believed to be the oldest bricks in this area having been used in the first brick building erected in Sevier County. The slate roof came from the mansion of W.G. Ross an early Knoxville industrialist. His home was built about 1900. The handcarved fascia is the work of a Hungarian master carver, William Thallmayer, who received his training in a guild of European cathedral carvers. 17th century buildings in Chester, England, provided the idea for the carved fascia. The village was deigned by Lee Butler. Community Tectonics, Inc. served as consultants.
