Celebrating the proud mountain heritage and cultural history of the people of the small mountain town of Pittman Center

The first settler of Pittman Center, Frederic Emert, was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War. Hevand his family arrived to the area in 1784 and settled in the fertile valley along the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River and today that valley bears their name– Emerts Cove. With the establishment of Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934, many families relocated to this valley, bringing with them their traditions and values.

The Museum will be closed during the month of July.
