More about Gatlinburg Tennessee
Welcome to beautiful Gatlinburg Tennessee, a mountain resort city in Sevier County and about 39 miles southeast of Knoxville, home to just under 5000 residents. As a popular vacation resort, Gatlinburg rests on the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along US Route 441. Originally known as White Oak Flats or just simply White Oak, Gatlinburg wasn't officially named what it is called today until about 1856 when a post office was established in the general store of Radford Gatlin, giving the town the name Gatlinburg.
Legend has it that a full-blown feud erupted between Radford Gatlin and the Ogles, another settler family in the area over the attempt to divert the town's main road. On the eve of the US Civil War, Gatlin, who became a Confederate sympathizer, at odds with the residents of the town was forced out in 1859, however, the name Gatlinburg stuck and like most of the Smoky Mountain communities, try to remain neutral during the war.
However, that was a long time ago and as the area grew into a logging community with a booming lumber industry, sawmills, and lumber companies, so did the draw for many residents and new settlers. The small community grew over the next few decades but has seen a few major fires over the years such as the fire of 1992 and the fire 2016. The latest starting in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at Chimney Tops, was a moderately contained wildfire compounded by strong winds and dry conditions. It took a year or two for things to really get back to normal but you can see that this is a close-knit town, steeped in history, nestled in rich forested areas.
Gatlinburg has several buildings and historical sites such as the First Methodist Church, and the Settlement School Community Outreach Historic District.
Tourism remains a vibrant industry in Gatlinburg, especially bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
