Experience an intoxicating mix of authentic Appalachian culture, a wealth of historic properties, rich Civil War heritage, and edgy new art in a bustling urban setting with easy access to the great outdoor - all at  SEMC 2014 Annual Meeting in Knoxville!

Nestled in the foothills of the Smokies, Knoxville’s lively and historic downtown is dense with great restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.   SEMC evening events will center around Gay Street, one of America’s great main streets and the home of the East Tennessee History Center and the historic Tennessee Theatre, and World’s Fair Park, site of the 1982 exposition and its iconic Sunsphere and the Knoxville Museum of Art.

SEMC is known for great off-site tours, and 2014 will be no exception. Explore the vast collections of the University of Tennessee’s McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture, 18th- and 19th-century historic house museums, and institutions and sites dedicated to African-American heritage. Walk quiet residential streets in search of traces of a bloody Civil War battle.  Discover long-abandoned marble quarries and learn about Knoxville’s history as "The Marble City." Experience the natural delights of the rugged urban wilderness within walking distance of downtown, and the cutting edge technology of nearby Oak Ridge.

We promise you’ll be energized, enlightened, and entertained. There might even be a drop of moonshine if you’re lucky.  You’ll never want to leave!
