Greeneville is a diversified community of just over 15,000 nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in East Tennessee - a community abounding in natural scenic beauty, warm friendly people, a fascinating history and an unlimited variety of outdoor activities.
The second oldest town in Tennessee, Greeneville's ambiance comes from a mixture of the old, with brick-lined sidewalks fronting homes dating back to the 1700s and 1800s, to the new, with its state-of-the-art performing arts center and the U.S. District Courthouse. Founded in 1783, the community is steeped in history as the home of 17th president Andrew Johnson (pictured above, his home below) and frontiersman Davy Crockett (who was born in nearby Limestone). The town was a center of abolitionism in the 1800's. Photos courtesy of Wikipedia.
