Description
Founded in Cherokee territory in 1785, Sevierville (Severe-ville) was named for John Sevier, who later became Tennessee's first governor. Sevier negotiated a treaty with Native Americans who ceded to European settlers the land between the French Broad River and the ridge separating the Little Tennessee and Little rivers.
Today Sevierville is a bustling tourist town known for its proximity to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (the city lies just 14 miles north) and its many nearby recreational activities. Douglas Dam, 11 miles northeast of town on SR 66, impounds Douglas Lake on the French Broad River.
Internationally known singer, songwriter and entertainer Dolly Parton was born in Sevierville in 1946. A life-size Dolly Parton statue sits on the lawn of the Sevier County Courthouse, 125 Court Ave., and depicts a barefoot Dolly sitting on a rock with her guitar.
