A Little History
In addition, it's internationally known as the hometown of Dolly Parton, who was born in Sevierville and lived in the Smoky Mountains with her 11 siblings. Dolly began performing locally for years until she left the Nashville just after her graduation from Sevier County High School.
In 1986, Dolly opened the Dollywood Entertainment Park in nearby Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It is only a 10 minute drive from here for a quick fun day trip. Each April Dolly returns to the area for the season's opening and parade. With her numerous awards as a recording artist and actress received the ultimate recognition when in May, 1987 Jim Gray, a local artist, sculpted a statue of her for the lawn of the Sevierville Courthouse. Dolly has gone on to be one of the Gems of the South as some say, and a major part of the history of the land.
