Morristown – Our Classroom
Located just outside the town limits of Morristown, The Seeing Eye has utilized the streets and businesses of this historic town as its extended classroom since moving from Nashville, Tenn., in 1931. Instructors train the dogs there daily, and most days, students train with their new dogs around the town square, known as The Green, and in surrounding neighborhoods.
Town officials and business owners alike are proud to say they are part of the training process, as dogs and teams-in-training are welcomed into stores, restaurants, the county courthouse and other public facilities, all as part of the instructional program. Just blocks away from the town center are bucolic hills and farms, so students have an opportunity to train in settings that parallel whatever surroundings they have back home.
Founded in 1715 and the site of key events in the American Revolution, Morristown is rich in history. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Morristown one of its Dozen Distinctive Destinations in the United States. Visitors to Morristown can enjoy unique shops, restaurants, theaters, parks, and historic sites.
