On this site on June 3, 1915, the Rotary Club of Knoxville was formed. Ten prominent Knoxville businessmen met over lunch in the Grill Room of the Cumberland Club which occupied the site at the time. It was the 181st Rotary Club to be chartered internationally and the fourth in Tennessee. Today there are over 1.2 million Rotarians in nearly 35,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries around the World. Colonel David C. Chapman had convened the group and was elected its first president. Chapman was later called "The Father of the Smokies" because of his tireless efforts at bringing the park to fruition.
