1. Doe Creek School Marker
Inscription. Doe Creek School is one of Tennessee's last remaining one-room log schoolhouses. Built c. 1870, it has been used as a school and a church. Yellow poplar logs, hauled to the site by a team of oxen, form the walls. Schoolmaster Elmer Duck dismissed the last class here in 1949 after teaching for five decades, one of the longer tenures for an educator in state history.
