CITY HISTORIES

We’ve created separate web pages filled with fascinating stuff about five of Tennessee’s largest cities.


Click here for the Memphis page. It'll tell you some of the most fascinating chapters in the history of the "Bluff City" -- such as the yellow fever epidemic and the Piggly Wiggly saga.
Ever wonder how Nashville got founded, how it became the state capital, or how it became the home of country music? Click here for the Nashville page. We'll tell you a lot more than one of those overpriced tour guides.
Then there is Knoxville -- the city of James White's Fort, the University of Tennessee, and the 1982 World's Fair. Click here for more.
There's a lot to talk about when it comes to Chattanooga -- such as the once wild (but now tame) Tennessee River; an incredible Civil War saga; and how many tasty things are made there. Click here for more.

And Oak Ridge isn't like any other city in Tennessee, or in America, for that matter. It was a city built in secret by the federal government to build the nation's first atomic bomb. Click here to read this incredible story.
