Greeneville/Greene County Tourism, Tennessee

Northeast Tennessee’s Greene County –
Rich Heritage…Friendly People

A vacation destination… A city rich in historical beauty… A small community feel in the midst of one of the largest counties in Tennessee… That is what you will find in Greeneville, Tennessee’s second oldest town, the home of the seventeenth president of the United States, Andrew Johnson, and the birthplace of celebrated hero, Davy Crockett.

Come see why we boast of our rich historical past and our breathtaking mountain views. You can tour Andrew Johnson’s early home and homestead, wander through the many exhibits in his museum and be thrilled by his ghost walking through the tailor shop where he worked and where many spirited debates occurred. Visit Monument Hill where Andrew Johnson and several members of his family are laid to rest. You can also visit David Crockett Birthplace State Park with its replica of the cabin in which Crockett was born. Encased in front of the cabin is an engraved marker reported to have been the footstone of the original cabin. The park also includes the Visitor’s Center and Museum, campsites, swimming pool and three scenic picnic areas.

Enticed yet? How about visiting historical churches as their bells toll the hour and history unfolds around each and every corner; or the spot where General John Hunt Morgan was shot and killed in 1864.   In downtown, one can also find the new City Garage Car Museum that features a diverse collection of 40 cars including a 1914 Ford Brass T Model, a DeLorean and others or how about three stories, 14,000 square feet and more than 75 antique dealers in the Greeneville Antique Mall located on Depot Street.

The Greeneville Greene County History Museum, also located in downtown, offers an Andrew Johnson Gallery, Paths to Freedom exhibit, a 20th Century African-American gallery, and so much more.

Historic Greeneville also boasts of an historic hotel located right in the heart of downtown. Created from four interconnected “Railroad Hotels” dating from the late 1800s, this property offers 51 guest rooms and a lavish presidential suite as well as meeting space to accommodate up to 300 people. The community is also blessed with several modern hotel/motel facilities and can accommodate small to medium meetings and conventions with free deluxe breakfasts, pools, fitness rooms and business centers.

If outdoor recreation is what you are looking for, Greeneville has a lot to offer.  From the Appalachian Trail and the Cherokee National Forest to Margarette Falls and Paint Creek, from horseback riding and camping to biking and hiking, Greeneville has it all.  For that golfer, the community has four public courses with all featuring majestic mountain views, rolling hills and plush greens.

Follow the quilt trail?  Greeneville has 17 sites along the Appalachian Quilt Trail that features farms, bed and breakfasts, agri tourism sites and many more.  Enjoy a gift shop, picnic and fresh produce at Still Hollow Farm or pick pumpkins and get lost in a “Corn Maze” at Myers Pumpkin Patch.

If it is a relaxing vacation getaway or a night out with loved ones, Greeneville is your next destination…  For more information, visit www.VisitGreenevilleTN.com or call 423-638-4111 for your free visitor guide.
