This tour isn't all history, we also point out some of the best places to eat and be entertained.

We will also be visiting the famous Arts and Crafts district to learn its history and the somewhat unusual reason that it came to exist. Pittman Center is an area that's much older than Gatlinburg and still remains mostly unchanged even after 70+ years of local growth. Pittman Center has managed to avoid the limelight that was bestowed on Gatlinburg and keeps its true mountain folk heritage. If you thought Mayberry was small wait until you see small town life in rural Pittman Center. We will also be visiting one of the areas oldest graveyards. In the graveyard your guide will teach you about the life and death of local residents. By the end of this tour you will have a much deeper understanding of the area and its people, those still around and those long passed. This is a fully narrated tour and all visitors are welcomed and encouraged to interact with the guide. Ask questions, be curious and get answers. We may also show DVD's to help teach you about our local history.
