- the history and genealogy of East Tennessee
Does anyone know what this old brick building is/was? I'm guessing a school....? I took it about... maybe... 1993. I'm not quite sure where I was. I had been to Camp Creek, stopped at the old general store at the 'Y' and, leaving the store, took the right-hand fork (i.e., northwest-ish) towards Greeneville. If memory serves, in just a few miles there was a sharp left-hand curve, the road straightened, and this building suddenly appeared, on the right! There wasn't a place to pull off the road, but I stopped on the road and snapped this picture. I think it had burned only shortly beforehand -- seems like I could still smell the smoke. Looking at a map, it must have been somewhere on Hwy. 350, maybe on the south side of the Nolachucky.
