May 1, 2007

GATLINBURG, Tenn. -- The National Park Service announced that Pi Beta Phi Settlement School buildings on Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts campus dating back to the early 1900s are now included on the National Register of Historic Places, the Nation's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.

The nominations had to first be approved by the Tennessee Historical Commission before getting final approval from National Park Service.

Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts evolved from the Pi Beta Phi Settlement School established in 1912. Located in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, Arrowmont is committed to its mission of "enriching lives through art."

Registration is now open for Summer 2007 Workshops. Register online, by phone, fax or mail.
