We've tried to keep it a secret, but it was only a matter of time until the rest of the world discovered what a wonderful place Jefferson County is. Jefferson County is nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and includes two beautiful lakes, Cherokee and Douglas. The county is also rich in history, being one of the oldest in Tennessee. In recent years, the county has been growing rapidly, as more and more people discover the charm of the place we call home. And although we hope to preserve our county's charm and character, we're willing to share. If you'd like to visit Jefferson County or perhaps settle here, we'd love to have you. In this section, you can learn a little more about the county and what it has to offer.
