At one time, this town was a Cherokee settlement called Great Tellico. This was one of the most important Native American towns of its era. After the Cherokee were forced further west in the 1830s, the Native trading crossroads in the area fell out of use. The area was settled by European immigrants, who loved the region’s fertile agricultural potential. Today, this rural small town is popular for its peaceful parks, nature areas, and museums.
