History of Cumberland County

Crossville is home to premier medical facilities, great schools,  many historic areas of interest, museums, unique shopping areas,  and theaters, including the Cumberland County Playhouse – Crossville has so much to offer -- it’s just better living here!


Cumberland County, created in 1856, is in the eastern part of Tennessee between Nashville and Knoxville;  Nashville is 120 miles west and Knoxville is 75 miles east.  Chattanooga, renowned for it’s “Choo-choos” and the Tennessee Aquarium, is only about 75 miles to the southeast.  About 65 miles to the east stand the beautiful Smoky Mountains.


Cumberland Mountain State ParkThe county, with an elevation of nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, is located on the Cumberland Plateau.  The County population is 46,802.  Crossville, the County seat, has a population of 8,981.  The county covers approximately 679 square miles.  Many of those miles include mountain views and scenic lakes including the Cumberland Mountain State Park.

Homestead TowerPrior to 1805, all of the surrounding area was Native American territory.  Arrowheads have been found in Cumberland County which carbon date as being several thousand years old.  The oldest community in the county is Crab Orchard, established in 1797.  The county includes the Cumberland Homesteads.  The Homestead project was a Depression Era effort to promote home ownership.  The project included building stone cottages and farms for over 256 “Homesteaders.”  The project was visited by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, and is designated as a national historical district.  The Homestead Tower (now a museum) still pays homage to the hard work of all those involved.

Crossville Courthouse BuildingCumberland County residents enjoy a full serving of each of the four seasons, from the spectacular fall colors to springtime’s blooming Dogwoods.  The mild winters and warm summers combine for an average temperature of 54 degrees.  The time from “frost to frost” is about 180 days.  Winds blow typically from the Southwest, and precipitation averages 52 inches for the year.
