Nicholas Gibbs Home in Knox County, TN

The Nicholas Gibbs Homeplace in Knox County, Tennessee
Built in 1793, it is one of the oldest structures in the state that still stands on its original site.


The weather forecast says we are most certainly going to have rain on Saturday for our annual meeting, so we are moving the event to Clapps Chapel United Methodist Church, which is about 1/2 mile down Emory Road from the Nicholas Gibbs cabin. Even if it doesn't rain on Saturday, with the amount of rain we are expected to get in the days prior to our annual meeting, we will be unable to park cars in the field. After we eat, people will be able to go tour the cabin if they wish as long as they can park in the gravel driveway. Please plan to attend anyway - we need your participation and will be discussing important business. Thank you!

Please join us on Saturday, June 8, 2019 for the annual meeting of the Nicholas Gibbs Historical Society. The business meeting begins at 11:00 AM, but we encourage you to come early. The house will be open by 9:00 AM so that you can come, look, and talk to everyone before the meeting.

The house is located at 7633 East Emory Road, Corryton, Tennessee, 37721. From Harbison's Crossroads in Gibbs, travel northeast on Emory Road about 1/2 mile, house is on the left.

As usual, lunch will be served immediately after the business meeting, so bring a chair and a dish of your choice. Eating and serving utensils and beverages will be provided.

If you cannot attend the meeting this year, dues are now payable. They are $25 per year for an individual and $40 per year for a family. Also, encourage your children, grandchildren, siblings, etc. to attend and become interested and active members of NGHS. Younger members are needed for future growth of the Society. Since we usually have members from out of state, it would be nice if more local members would attend and meet your cousins. We are in desperate need of your continued support to keep this unique house in good repair. Please mail your checks to: Ms. Sonja Collins, 9822 Emory Road NE, Corryton, TN 37721-3001. Please include your email address on your check if you haven't already.

Hope to see you there!
