Sevierville is the eighth oldest town in Tennessee and is named for John Sevier, one of the leading figures in the history of Tennessee. When the State of Tennessee was formed in 1796, Sevier became its first governor. He also served as a state senator and was a member of the US House of Representatives during his career. His nickname was “Nolichucky Jack” for his exploits along the Nolichucky River.
Sevierville is in the heart of the country that birthed what was once called Hillbilly music. But now, many authorities consider the songs of the southern mountaineers to be the only true folk music ever produced by the European immigrants to America.
This adventure lab will take you to a few of the interesting and historical sites around Sevierville and should take less than one hour to complete. You might even find a few geocaches along the way.
Enjoy your visit!
