“Your Hometown in the Smokies”
Sevierville is the county seat of Sevier County, Tennessee and the hometown of Dolly Parton. Since the early 90s, Sevierville has grown both the borders of the city and its influence on the tourist industry. Adding many shopping opportunities, entertainment venues and lots of good food, Sevierville is becoming its own destination in the Smokies. Instead of merely being the support arm for Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Sevierville is really coming into its own.
Sevierville was one of the most heavily settled areas by Native Americans on the Tennessee side of the Smokies. After years of the Cherokee controlling this area and building trails and trading posts with the towns on the other side of the mountains, European settlers made their way into the Smokies. As settlers began to work their way into the area they settled around the streams and rivers that cover the area that is Sevierville.
Over time, as Sevier County became a vacation destination (through the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park), Sevierville has grown into the town to shop in while you are in the Smokies. Along with those shopping areas they have grown to include the area all the way out Hwy 66 to the Tennessee Smokies Baseball Park and the Bass Pro Shop.
