The Rock House State Historic Site is open for visitors for 2018. Hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Wednesday-Saturday. The Rock House is a historical site and was built before the Civil War. It was purchased by the state of Tennessee and is among 16 other sites that are state owned. The Tennessee Historical Commission provides leadership for the site as operational funding and needed repairs.
In 2017, visitors were from foreign countries and throughout the United States. Thirty-five hundred visitors learned the importance of this site in White County and its impact in early history, as Andrew Jackson, president of the United States, traveled with overnight stops at the then toll site. Jackson’s travels were to Washington.
Visitors are welcome to White County’s Rock House historical site – no entrance fee.
