Seventeen months after being completely dismantled and moved from Knox County, Tenn., the 217-year-old former home of Maryville College founder Isaac Anderson has been fully restored in its new location on the grounds of the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center in Townsend, Tenn.

The Isaac Anderson Cabin was formally dedicated in its new home during a grand opening ceremony at the Heritage Center on Feb. 8 and is now a permanent part of the museum. Visit the MC website to read the press release, watch the video and see the photos!
