SYCAMORE SHOALS STATE HISTORIC PARK sycamoreshoalstn.org

Rocky Mount is a two-story log house built in the late 1820s, and is located on the former property of William Cobb in Piney Flats. Today visitors can step back into the year 1791 and gain an appreciation for the daily lifestyle of a frontier family as costumed interpreters invite guests into the restored house. Visitors discover the daily chores in the kitchen, barn, weaving cabin, gardens, and sheep.

The park’s visitor center features interpretive exhibits highlighting the history of this time, an Eastern National bookstore, and gift shop. The annual presentation of Tennessee’s Official Outdoor Drama, Liberty! is held every July with Fort Watauga as a backdrop, telling the story of the colonists who settled in the area during the late 18th century.
