History of Gatlinburg

In 1854, Radford Gatlin set up a post office in his general store, under the name Gatlinburg. During the 1880's logging became a booming business for Gatlinburg, thanks primarily to the newly invented band saw.

In 1934 the Great Smoky Mountains National Park became a reality. More than 40,000 visitors transcended the area in less than a year. And in 1936, a half million people visited the park. Gatlinburg has thrived since.
