A Closer Look at Pigeon Forge...

Want to know the "finer details" of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee?  Read on!

The city of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is nestled between Sevierville and Gatlinburg along the Little Pigeon River.  The town is named after an iron forge that existed in the town in the 1800's.  The Old Mill which was constructed in 1830 is still in operation today and is a popular tourist attraction and restaurant. 

Commercialization officially boomed in the mid 1900's due to an increase in tourist traffic to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The limited amount of land in nearby Gatlinburg was owned by local families who did not welcome outside business interests.  These business owners looked to nearby Pigeon Forge to start their enterprises.  Today, Pigeon Forge is known for its family-friendliness and endless activities.  From go-carts to miniature golf and mile after mile of shops and stores, Pigeon Forge is a Smoky Mountain destination you won't want to miss!
