ⓘ Alpine Institute

The Alpine Institute was a Presbyterian mission school located in Overton County, Tennessee, United States. Operating in one form or another from 1821 until 1947, the school provided badly needed educational services to children living in the remote hill country of the Upper Cumberland region. In 2002, several of the schools surviving structures were added to the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district.

John Dillard 1793-1884, Minister, affiliated with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in southern Appalachia, established the Alpine school atop Alpine mountains in 1821 and expanded the school in 1840-ies. The school was burned by bushwhackers during the Civil war and again by the Ku Klux Clan in the years after the war. The school was rebuilt in 1880 to its present location at the foot of the Alps, and under the direction of G. A. the future Governor of Tennessee Roberts continued to flourish over the next decade. In 1917, the better-funded Presbyterian Church USA took over management of the school and helped it develop in one of the States most competitive rural schools.
