Knox Heritage and East Tennessee Historical Alliance are establishing a Morristown College Legacy Garden on the 52 acre site on which Morristown College was opened in 1881. The property is now owned by the City of Morristown and newly named as Heritage Park. The proposal was adopted by the City and a double-sided, historical sign (Phase 1), will be erected in a temporary location for the park opening on Nov 16th, 2019.
Future plans include creating a circular garden area with plantings around the sign. A Time Capsule will be buried under the sign.
The total cost of the project is $20K. The money is to be raised through tax deductible donations of any amount beginning Friday, November 1, 2019 and running to March 1, 2020. Checks may written to Knox Heritage, with Morristown College Legacy Site on the memo line. Contributions may be mailed to Knox Heritage, P. O. Box 1242, Knoxville, TN 37901.
