Tucked away in the Great Smoky Mountains is a century of family fun and entertainment in Sevier County, Tennessee.
Sevier County and The Great Smoky Mountains are among the most visited places in the country, and have been since the early 20th Century. But, as with most tourist towns, while the destination stays the same, the attractions change. What tourists find today is very different from what used to be.
Over the last 100 years, many attractions, motels, restaurants, and other businesses have come and gone. Modern tourists visit Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, Ober Gatlinburg and, most famously, Dolly Parton's Dollywood in Pigeon Forge. However, these are just the latest in a rich history of family fun and entertainment in Sevier County, including Jolly Golf, Magic World, Archie Campbell's Hee Haw Village, the Rebel Railroad, Goldrush Junction, Silver Dollar City, The Little Brown Jug Restaurant, and dozens more.
Lost Attractions of Sevier County collects and preserves the memories, pictures, and signboards of these "lost attractions" that formed the foundation of today's Sevier County tourism economy. So join authors Tim Hollis, a historian of the Southern tourism industry, and Sevier County resident Mitzi Soward as they take you on a rollercoaster ride through a century of mountain fun!
