Before the idea of luxury camping came along, or the now trending “glamping” concept, the “Bell” tent had a long history as a functional military tent on battlefields as early as the Byzantine empire.
Our tents at Quarry Cove are inspired by The American Sibley Tent which is influenced by the Native American tipi. Henry Hopkins Sibley was an American military officer who created his tent in the 19th century. Sibley took elements of the tipi and made it more efficient. Instead of 12 wood poles acting as a tripod, he used a single metal center pole for quick construction and lightweight transportation.
In an 1858 agreement with the Department of War, Sibley was to receive $5 USD for every tent made. The Union Army produced and used nearly 44,000 Sibley tents during the war. The tent was patented in 1865.
However, because Sibley resigned from the US Army to join the Confederate States Army after the outbreak of the American Civil War. He received no royalties on his patent
Named in honor of the tribe of Native Americans known as the Cherokee, Cherokee Lake is a reservoir of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). From August 1940 to December 1941 Cherokee Dam was constructed. The dam is on the Holston River, about 52 miles upstream from the area where the French Broad and Holston rivers meet to create the Tennessee River. With 400 miles of shore length and over 28,000 acres of surface area Cherokee Lake offers everything for the outdoor enthusiast. Follow this link for more information on the lake:
