People gathered at the Blount County Library Monday to take a look into their past and remember their heritage. The city hosted City of Alcoa: History in Pictures.

Last year, Judge David Duggan and George Williams spent months searching for historic pictures of Alcoa for a book they were working on.

Their book, which includes over 220 historic photographs, was released last November.

Monday, they gave a presentation on their book and many pictures they didn't include.

Stone House Manor is home to antiques and art

Stone House Manor is home to antiques and art

It was a two story house that was home to families over the years. Now it's a two story business that is home to antiques and art.

"Stone House is a dream come true. My husband and I are both retired and it's always been on our bucket list to have an antique shop," Maggie Crawford said.

Maggie and Richard Crawford converted the residence to a business and filled it with their own antiques and more.

"The antiques, most of them are local. This particular dining room suite came out of an estate out in Jackson Hills," she said.
