Wears Valley Tennessee...the place to relax in the Smokies

Wears Valley Smoky MountainsWears Valley, sometimes spelled Wear Valley, is situated in a valley known as Wear Cove, running parallel to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Discover informational links to Wears Valley attractions, restaurants and more.

Originally the Wears Valley area as we know it today was once called "Crowson Cove," after its first settler, Aaron Crowson.  While no one is sure why the name changed, the valley became known as Wears Valley by the 1900's after Samuel Wear, a Revolutionary War veteran who erected a fort near the entrance to Wear Cove in what is now called Pigeon Forge.

The Wears Valley community covers most of Wear Cove, with the national park boundary comprising the town's entire southern border. Pigeon Forge is 6 miles to the east with Townsend about 8 miles to the west. U.S. Route 321,  also known as "Wears Valley Road," is the main road leaving Pigeon Forge into Wears Valley and onto Townsend.  Lyon Springs Road connects Wears Valley Road with Little River Road inside the national park, crossing the gap between Cove Mountain and Roundtop and coming out at the  Metcalf Bottoms picnic area.

Crowson arrived in Wears Valley from North Carolina in 1792 along with his friend, Peter Percefield. Wear's Fort was attacked in 1793. Percefield was killed in a Cherokee attack in 1794 and buried on a hill in the eastern half of Wear Cove in what is now Crowson Cemetery. Peter Brickey arrived in 1808 operating a large farm and distillery in Wears Valley until 1856. The log house he built shortly after his arrival still stands in Smith Hollow, between Wears Valley and Townsend, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the farms throughout Wears Valley were ravaged by the Civil War and Cherokee raids.Wears Valley Brickey House

Sometime after the Civil War, Alfred Line established a farm at the base of Roundtop Mountain. Line Spring, a clear mountain spring flowing down from Roundtop, passed its name to a small recreational area that developed in this part of the cove as folks in the 1880s and 1890s thought the mineral-rich mountain springs had health-restoring properties.  This early form of tourism later contributed to the 1910 construction of the Line Spring Hotel by D.B. Lawson. The hotel boosted the valley's economy by providing a market for local farmers.

In 1902, according to local lore, an oak tree was destroyed by lightning, and in response, residents erected Headrick Chapel on the cemetery's grounds. Four Baptist and Methodist congregations shared the chapel, with funeral services having priority. The chapel's bell would ring once for every year of a deceased's life, a tradition still observed by Wears Valley inhabitants today. In 2001, Headrick Chapel was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1934, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was established and in the 1950's roads through the valley improved, leading to an increase in roadside tourist outlets.
