Bordered by the dramatic natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge is a site to behold. Pigeon Forge, Tennessee was a quiet little mountain town until the opening of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934. Now it’s one of the country's most convenient vacation spots with some 11 million visitors each year. And talk about a perfect spot, it’s only a one-day drive for over half of the U.S. population.
The city of Pigeon Forge dates back to 1820 when pioneer Isaac Love established an iron forge here. Later, his son William built a mill next to the river. The Old Mill, as it is known today, remains operational. The iron forge and flocking pigeons along the river likely gave the town its name.
