“Tennessee’s Second Oldest Town”

There’s a special feeling that comes when someone saves a place for you.  A spot at the table. A seat for the show.  A place in their hearts.  Imagine what it would be like if an entire town saved a place just for you.  First, with their warmth, their hospitality and their absolute acceptance of you as part of the “family”.  And second, by preserving a heritage . . . a breathtaking natural beauty . . . that is hard to find these days.

Dandridge Tennessee History


Dandridge was founded around 1783 when the settlers came across the Appalachian Mountains moving west. It remained a quaint agriculture setting due to the fertile lands along the French Broad River. When TVA began construction of Douglas Dam to generate electrical power, many of these farms are now covered by the waters of the Douglas Lake Reservoir. The Town of Dandridge would not be in existence today were it not for a group of citizens who went to Washington, DC and lobbied for a stone and earth dike to keep the waters of the reservoir from flooding the town.


Dandridge Tennessee Commerce


Being a short drive from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Knoxville and the University of Tennessee, Dandridge offers lodging, food and shopping to those who want to avoid the daily crowds.
