Sevier County as it is known today was
formed on September 18, 1794 from part of neighboring Jefferson
retained the same boundaries that it was drawn up with over
200 years ago. The county takes its name from John Sevier,
governor of the failed state of Franklin and first governor
of Tennessee, who played a prominent role during the tumultuous
early years of settlement in the region. Since its establishment
in 1795, the county seat has been situated at Sevierville (also
for Sevier), the eighth-oldest city in Tennessee.
Prior to the
late 1930s, Sevier County's population, economy, and society
held little significance vis-à-vis any other
county in the rural South. However, with the creation of
the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1936, the destiny
Sevier County, within the bounds of which lies thirty percent
of the total area of the national park, was to change drastically.
Today, rampant tourism supports the county's burgeoning economy
which does not appear to be slowing any time in the near future.
