... that while Roane State is well-respected as our local community college, Roane County once had two other institutes of higher learning?
The first was in Harriman, where what we now know as the Temperance Building was used as the part of the American Temperance University.
In 1898, its second year, the university enrolled 345 students from 20 states.
Believe it or not, this school is in the college football record books.
Trust us, it’s not a good thing.
