An East Tennessee Legacy

The Candoro Arts and Heritage Center is one of Tennessee’s most unique treasures. Built in 1923, the Center’s main building is the former showroom and office of the Candoro Marble Works, an historic East Tennessee company that was at one time the largest producer of Tennessee pink marble in the U.S. In 1996, the main structure and other buildings were added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Candoro Arts and Heritage Center is a popular wedding venue and quickly becoming a cultural hub in East Tennessee. It is the Center’s mission to celebrate the legacy of workers in the marble industry in East Tennessee.
