|Rocky Mount Historic Site in Piney Flats, Tennessee
When William Cobb arrived with his family in the western frontier of North Carolina in 1769, he did not realize that his new home would play such an important role in shaping the future of our country. Passing through the door of William Cobb's home, visitors step back in time to the year 1791. George Washington is President of the United States and has appointed William Blount as Governor of the Southwest Territory.
Governor Blount has taken up residence at Rocky Mount to conduct the business affairs of the new territory. The tour experience invites one to become part of the happenings of the year 1791 through the first person interpretation of daily lifestyles, domestic and work skills, food, clothing, furnishings and games. Rocky Mount also offers a variety of special events, educational programs, and meeting facilities.
