Preserving the past

The Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee & Southwest Virginia

The Heritage Alliance is dedicated to the preservation of the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of our region and to providing educational experiences related to history and heritage for a wide range of audiences.


    Oak Hill School

    One of many educational programs, the Oak Hill School Heritage Education Program allows participants the opportunity to step back to 1892-1893. Learn More



    The warehouse serves as a headquarters for the Heritage Alliance collection of salvaged building materials from historic structures that have been donated throughout the years to the organization. Learn more.



The Heritage Alliance would not be successful without the generous contributions of our donors. In combination with the Chester Inn State Historic Site and the Oak Hill School Heritage Education Program, Heritage Alliance resources, programs and services provide the state’s most in-depth glimpse into Tennessee’s first town. Your contributions support all of these activities and helps us serve a rapidly expanding audience.
