Inscription.  Dr. Samuel Pride, first Worthy Master of the New Providence Masonic Lodge, built his house here. Maj. Gen. W. T. Sherman, enroute to the relief of Burnside at Knoxville, billeted himself here. From 1878 to 1900 it was the Friends’ Normal Institute. Becoming the Maryville Public School in 1900, it was replaced by West Side School in 1910: this was razed in 1955.
