Rose Center is Morristown and Hamblen County’s community cultural center. Located in Morristown’s first coeducational public high school built in 1892, the facility is named after Judge James G. Rose, Civil War Hero and Chairman of the School Board at the time when plans for construction of the school were initiated.

The building operated as a school until 1975, at which time a group of local citizens organized, raised funds to replace the vintage roof, and re-opened the building as a museum and cultural center. This effort was part of the community’s celebration of the nation’s bicentennial.
