History of Rocky Top, Tn
Rocky Top, Tennessee, holds a rich history deeply intertwined with the region’s Appalachian heritage. Originally known as Coal Creek, then later as Lake City, the town’s story began in the late 19th century when coal mining drove its economic growth. The town witnessed significant labor unrest, known as the Coal Creek War, during the early 1890s.
In the mid-20th century, the song “Rocky Top,” penned by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, became a beloved anthem for the state of Tennessee. The song’s popularity led to the town’s name change to Rocky Top in 2014.
Today, Rocky Top stands as a testament to its coal mining roots and serves as a vibrant community that cherishes its musical heritage and Appalachian traditions. Visitors and residents alike can immerse themselves in the town’s rich history while relishing the natural beauty of the surrounding Great Smoky Mountains, and enjoying the riding trails of Windrock park.
