Sevierville (pronounced see-vear-vull) is the nearest town. It was established in 1794 and named after Col. John Sevier. Sevierville is rich in history. Dolly Parton was born here in 1946. A statue of her is located in front of the County Courthouse in the Historic downtown area on Court Avenue.
The main attraction for this area is of course the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. On June 15, 1934, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, set aside 814 square miles of the Appalachian Mountains. It is the largest and most visited Park in the Untied States. The highest point is Clingman's Dome at 6,643 feet above sea level. Horseback riding, hiking, nature trails and scenic overlooks make this area so popular. Black Bear, Elk, and deer are a common site.
The mountains get there name from a natural haze. Hydrocarbons produced by the trees and vast vegetation combined with the high humidity and rainfall produce a bluish/smoky cast. Thus the Great "Smoky" Mountains.
