The Hawkins County Chapter of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities, (A.P.T.A.), has chosen to fund and erect this monument to commemorate the nearby site of the original town well in Rogersville.

This marble block was quarried by hand in Hawkins County in 1880. The marble was valued highly for its unique deep red color with white crystal accents, and contributed to the town's early economic growth. It was also selected to be included in both the U.S. House and Senate buildings in Washington, D.C., as well as in other prestigious structures throughout the United States of America.

This memorial is dedicated this day, July 4, 1987 and is the work of Ellison L. Torbert, Sculptor.
