About Sevierville Tennessee
Created back in 1794 by John Sevier, Sevierville has a long history dating back to when James McMahon donated 25 acres for a town square in the center of town. The tract was parceled out into half-acre lots that purchasers were required to build a brick, framed, or stone structures on, in the early 19th century, Knoxville and Nashville were connected by route 17 giving cattle drivers greater access to markets along the East Coast. Over the next 100 years, more roads and access points were developed but a tragic fire in 1856 took down the recently constructed courthouse, 41 houses, and several shops.
But in the years to come, more homes and buildings were constructed and now several are listed on the National Register Of Historic Sites including the post office, Masonic Lodge, the Harrisburg covered bridge [pictured], and several homes. Rich in history, steeped in agriculture and trade routes, Sevierville has long been a landmark in the Knoxville Metro area.

"Good Ole rocky top , rocky top Tennessee! I was born in New Jersey and when my parents divorced at age 5 , my mom moved my older sister and I to Tennessee at age 6. Since then Tennessee is home. Anywhere we visit it is always a welcome sight to see the mountains when you get off exit #407."
