On Saturday, September 20, 2014, the Town of Pittman Center, TN, located just to the east of Gatlinburg, will be celebrating its annual Heritage Day event, from 9AM-4PM. Some of you are probably wondering – where is Pittman Center and what makes this amazingly beautiful mountain town so special? Actually, Pittman Center has a very interesting and unique heritage all its own, and also has earned many great distinctions and honors over the years for its location, as well as its natural beauty. Today, we focus on Pittman Center, and its truly unique mountain heritage, right here in the Great Smoky Mountains!
The story of Pittman Center starts with Frederick Emert, a Revolutionary War veteran who first settled in the area in the year 1784, and this area was first named Emert’s Cove, after Mr. Emert. Later, in 1919, a visionary Methodist missionary preacher named Dr. John Sevier Burnett came to the area, and began to build a center for the mission work being conducted there, and then his good friend, the Rev. Eli Pittman, came to the area a year later, in 1920, and then decided to build on the small settlement being established there, leading to the start of the Town of Pittman Center. In 1974, the Town of Pittman Center was officially incorporated in the State of Tennessee, and has remained as such ever since.
In addition, the Town of Pittman Center has also earned some notable distinctions over the years, as well. One of these involves the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River, which was recently ranked as being the cleanest river in the entire State of Tennessee. Also, the Town of Pittman Center was recently selected as being one of the best small cities in the United States. More importantly, the Town itself is situated in a broad valley area, with the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park serving as a wonderful and beautiful natural background, as well as being in close proximity to the nearby cities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and many other Sevier County cities. As you travel up or down U.S. Highway 321, which goes through the Town of Pittman Center, it is not hard to see why this Town is “a community dedicated to preserving our mountain heritage.” For more information on Pittman Center, you can visit the Town’s official website today to learn more about this unique community.
