(WBIR - Hamblen County) The rich history of Appalachia was on display through arts and crafts in Morristown this weekend.

For the 38th consecutive year, Morristown brought the best area mountain music, dancing and story-telling amid dozens more exhibits and demonstrations of centuries of Appalachian culture.

One of the festival's main attractions comes from Doctor Doak. Doak sells pies using his father's recipes, which date back to the early 1900s. He's said he's sold his pies ever since the event started.

"I enjoy making my pies...cause back in history, my dad owned a restaurant in Morristown and we had homemade pies and I made all the pies in them," said Doak.

All the proceeds from the festival go to Morristown's Rose Center and the center's historical and educational programs.
