The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville-Putnam County has the total package — rich culture, friendly people, breathtaking nature, a top-rated educational system, award-winning regional medical facilities and thriving commerce — and we’re more than happy to share these treasures with all who join us, whether it’s for a little while or forever. Putnam County, the geographic hub of the 14-county Upper Cumberland region, is situated at the crossroads of Interstate 40 and State Highway 111 and is within a day’s drive of about 76 percent of the nation’s population. Our prime location makes us a regional center for employment, education, health care and recreational/cultural opportunities to 340,000 people. Putnam County ranks 18th in dollars spent by visitors to Tennessee, and Cookeville, its county seat, is the site of one of the most frequented exits on I-40 in Tennessee. Visitors and residents enjoy our optimal weather, which features four distinct seasons, mild winters, warm summers and minimal snow. We have so much going for us that the rest of the nation is starting to take notice. The American Chamber of Commerce has rated us one of America’s most affordable communities; “The Rating Guide photo 1 Cookeville-area residents gather on a sunny afternoon to enjoy a Bryan Symphony Orchestra concert in the Dogwood Park Performance Pavilion.

In addition, we are proud to be an official Retire Tennessee certified community; an American Association of Retirement Communities Seal of Approval community; a national Main Street community; and a Tennessee Three-Star community. A Stone’s Throw from Nature Cookeville is a nature lover’s paradise. We’re located within a short drive of two city-owned lakes, numerous rivers and streams that traverse the community, and three U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lakes — including Dale Hollow, voted #4 Lake in the Nation to “Float Your Boat” by USA Today — plus state parks and natural areas that span more than 60,000 acres and include breathtaking waterfalls, hiking trails and stunning natural features. Those who wish to stay in town can enjoy Cookeville’s sprawling golf courses or its 10 well-tended parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area that features a 56-acre lake, walking trails, paddleboats, picnic shelters, playgrounds and an 18-hole disc golf course. There’s also City Lake, a 35-acre natural park with a fishing pier, hiking trails and a waterfall overlook, and Dogwood Park in the center of town, which was recently expanded to include seven grassy acres, a stone splashing fountain and a concert shell where our symphony frequently performs. Culture Without Congestion You don’t have to go to the big city to experience the arts. Cookeville is one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with its own symphony orchestra, Tennessee Tech University’s Bryan Symphony Orchestra. Cookeville is also home to the world-famous TTU Tuba Ensemble, a frequent Carnegie Hall performer. The hills are alive with visual artists and fine crafters, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University that has served as a magnet for teachers and students of fine craft for more than three decades. Taking inspiration from the natural elements in the hills and hollers where many of them have hidden their studios, our artists create some truly wonderful pieces and display them regularly in a handful of local galleries and at the Craft Center. Those who like their arts played out onstage will enjoy year-round productions at the Cookeville Performing Arts Center, a 456-seat live performance theater, which produces the state, regional and national award-winning Backstage at CPAC series, an annual rotation of contemporary plays. In addition, CPAC is the home of Cookeville Children’s Theatre productions and a variety of other local events. Just What the Doctor Ordered Our state-of-theart hospital, Cookeville Regional Medical Center, quite literally adds to the quality of life here. A 247bed hospital with 200 physicians covering 40 medical and surgical specialties, CRMC has made Cookeville the region’s go-to source for top-rated medical care. CRMC has been recognized nationally for excellence in many different categories. Healthgrades® named CRMC among the top 5 percent of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide in 2013, earning Cookeville Regional the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence™. Healthgrades® has also ranked Cookeville Regional among America’s 100 Best Hospitals in four specialties and No. 1 in Tennessee in five specialties. In another testament to our community’s commitment to making quality care available, Cookeville reportedly has more automated external defibrillators than any other community in the nation, thanks to our very active Mended Hearts organization. An A+ for Education An educational hub for the region, Cookeville is home to Tennessee Tech University, which has garnered international acclaim and is consistently ranked among the best universities in academics and value.

Our entire school district was recently 100-percent accredited by AdvancED, the parent organization of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools - Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACSCASI), and the ACT scores of Putnam County students are above the national average.

Manufacturing serves as the region’s largest employment sector, followed by retail and health care. Agriculture and tourism are also leading industries. Our progressive leadership strives to nurture existing companies while attracting new businesses to the area. With that goal in mind, the city and county have partnered to develop the new, 304-acre Highlands Business Park, which offers premier land parcels off I-40 and will soon be linked to the interstate via a fifth interchange that will also connect the park to Highway 70W. Other advantages to locating a business here include a ready workforce, a regional airport, easy access to an international airport, and a competitive incentive package from local, state and federal programs.

Until rails reached the area around 1891, Algood was farmland — much of it owned by Joel Algood, and known as “Algood Oldfields.” The Nashville and Knoxville Railroad bought land from him for a depot and called it “Algood,” thus naming the community that grew up around the station. 80 miles east of Nashville 100 miles west of Knoxville On Highways 111 and 42 3,495 1115’ above sea level 4 square miles Mayor, (931) 537-9545 Five aldermen City administrator, (931) 537-6830 Ext. 224 Fire Dept.: (931) 537-6357 Police Dept.: (931) 537-6830 Water: Town of Algood Water, Sewer and Sanitation Dept., (931) 537-9545 Electric: City of Cookeville, (931) 520-5213 Gas: City of Cookeville, (931) 520-5213 City of Monterey Monterey was once the pioneer settlement “Standing Stone,” so named for a large boulder on the historic Walton Road nearby.

The Nashville and Knoxville Railroad (the Tennessee Central) ran through Cookeville in 1890. Construction of Highway 70 in the 1930s, Interstate 40 in the 1960s, and Highway 111 in the 1990s helped make the town a commercial center. 79 miles east of Nashville 101 miles west of Knoxville At intersection of I-40 and Highway 111 30,435 1133’ above sea level 22 square miles Mayor, (931) 520-5241 Five-member city council City manager, (931) 520-5240 Fire Dept.: (931) 526-2121 Police Dept.: (931) 526-2125 Water: City of Cookeville, (931) 520-5213 Electric: City of Cookeville, (931) 520-5213 Gas: City of Cookeville, (931) 520-5213 City of Baxter Baxter has borne various names.

Cummins Falls, enjoyed for many decades as one of the Upper Cumberland’s “best-kept secrets,” joined the ranks of Tennessee’s greatest natural treasures when Gov. Bill Haslam dedicated it as the 54th addition to the Tennessee State Parks system in May 2012. sycamore and hemlock trees. Woodland plants include October lady’s tresses, star chickweed, liverleaf and Allegheny spurge. The property’s forested streamside protects turkey, quail and eagles, as well as a variety of fox, mink and unique insects such as damselflies and dragonflies. Through a cooperative agreement with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, fishing for bluegill and bass along the riverbank will be permitted with a Tennessee fishing license. While Cummins Falls State Park is officially open to the public, enhancements to the park – including trails, additional roadwork, restroom facilities and a small park office – are still part of the overall park management plan. The park will be a day-use park and will be open from 8 a.m. until sunset year-round. Cummins Falls’ rich history includes a time when Indians used the area to track the numerous buffalo that wallowed in the river’s shallow areas. In the 1790s, Sergeant Blackburn, a veteran of the Revolutionary War and for whom the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River was named, was awarded the land in lieu of a pension. The land was acquired by John Cummins in 1825, and he used it to build the first of two mills. Because of his growing clientele, a larger second mill was built in 1845. Local residents would visit the mills and the falls for both commerce and recreation. The mill was washed away during the great flood of 1928, but cars and paved highways had already begun to make the trek to Cummins Falls more accessible. No more construction took place on the land, but it stayed with the Cummins family for more than 180 years until the recent efforts by the Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation to purchase the land through private and public donations for resale to the State of Tennessee for nearly $1,040,000.

Cummins Falls is formed on the Eastern Highland Rim and has been a favorite scenic spot and swimming hole for residents of Jackson and Putnam counties for more than 100 years. Cummins Falls also has been listed as one of the 10 best swimming holes in the United States by Travel and Leisure magazine. The addition of the new park at Cummins Falls was made possible through the leadership of Gov. Haslam, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and through the coordinating efforts and very generous support of the Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation. Other key partners include the Friends of Cummins Falls State Park, The Nature Conservancy’s Tennessee Chapter, the Cummins family, the State Lands Acquisition Fund and the Tennessee Department of Transportation. “I want to extend my congratulations to the citizens of both Jackson and Putnam counties who rallied in support of preserving and protecting Cummins Falls as a state park, opening up to the public a beautiful, one-of-akind landmark for use today and for future generations,” Gov. Haslam said. “Cummins Falls will not only serve as a constant reminder of the natural beauty Tennessee has to offer, this new state park will continue to demonstrate how private/public partnerships can work together to make a difference.” Situated in the Cordell Hull watershed, Cummins Falls’ forest includes a variety of oak, beech, buckeye, Address 390 Cummins Falls Lane Cookeville, TN 38501 For more informatio Cummins Falls, visit Te n about nnessee’s parks rks.com. website at tnstatepa c o o k e v i ll e- P u t n a m c o u n t y, t e nn e s s e e + Ch amber of Commerce | 13 get ready to explore ’ s d n a l h g i h e h t large parks and natural areas Bike boat cabins camp hike ride hunt fish lodge wildlife Picnic & natural areas play paddle & sports swim white water 125,000 acres • 85 miles from Cookeville Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area 20,000 acres • 43 miles from Cookeville Fall creek falls state park Miles of scenic gorges and sandstone bluffs.

Not only do we have award-winning medical care, tremendous natural vistas and a progressive business climate, but we also have cultural opportunities comparable to what one might find in much larger towns, giving us a distinctive local flavor. ART A great variety of very talented visual artists and craftspeople, many of whom are known regionally and nationally, call Putnam County home. The historic West Side district is dotted with shops that boast their vibrant work, and the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University, features several rotating exhibits and a large gallery shop filled with the work of the program’s BFA students along with that of other nearby artisans in clay, fibers, glass, metals and wood. Our artists unite each autumn to host the Art Prowl studio tour, which offers the public a chance to see artists at work in their own studios and in local galleries. We also have two nonprofit art organizations — the Cumberland Art Society and the Cookeville Arts Council — that host workshops, exhibits and other opportunities for artists to master and display their work. Or, you can spend an evening making your own masterpiece at The Art Mill, located across the street from the depot museum. Music If music is your thing, you’ll find that live performances abound here.

The Cookeville Community Concert Band performs in the Dogwood Performance Pavilion every other Monday night throughout the summer, and the Mastersingers, a community choral ensemble, presents public concerts and also performs at many private and community functions. And then there’s the big event each September, when Cookeville cordons off the courthouse square for Fall FunFest, a weekend musical celebration featuring continual musical performances on two stages, plus crafts, food and entertainment for children. Fall FunFest draws musicians from across the state and region and also features the Cookeville CookOff, a competition that determines the Tennessee State Champion for the Kansas City Barbeque Society. Television/theater Our Emmy Award-winning public television station, WCTE-TV, offers Cookeville and the Upper Cumberland an outstanding range of programs, from nationally acclaimed PBS shows to coverage of local issues and events. WCTE also regularly airs and has obtained national syndication for several local productions. In conjunction with its children’s programming, WCTE makes a community impact through its educational outreach program. Stations of Imagination, its signature event, is held during Fall FunFest and features characters from favorite children’s shows, a stage event, local dance teams, comedians, storytellers and a variety of activities aimed at making learning fun.

Putnam County is graced with 14 well-tended parks, the crown jewel of which is Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre regional park where visitors can feed the ducks along the trails that encircle a 56-acre lake, hop into a paddleboat and pedal their way around the lake, bring a boat and fish, or enjoy a picnic and 18-hole disc golf, basketball or volleyball at one of the park’s three large shelter and play areas. Our newest source of pride is Dogwood Park in the center of town. Completely renovated in 2012, it features seven grassy acres with a tall, lighted, stone splashing fountain where children – and children at heart – can play to their heart’s content. A large concert shell with an earthterraced seating area serves as a beautiful natural venue for symphony performances, concerts and our annual Shakespeare in the Park series. Get Your Green On Within just a few minutes’ drive from Cookeville are two staterun natural splendors you won’t want to miss. Featured in the August 2011 issue of Southern Living magazine as one of the “Five Ways to Stay Cool in Tennessee,” Burgess Falls State Natural Area is home to four waterfalls – the tallest of which is 136 feet – along a one-and-a-half-mile round-trip trail. Known for its sheer bluffs, narrow ridges, rolling water and abundant mixed forest, the park also offers a native butterfly garden, picnic area and fishing. And then there’s our newest state park, Cummins Falls, a 211-acre site that is home to Tennessee’s eighth largest waterfall. A favorite swimming hole among Jackson and Putnam countians for more than 100 years, Cummins Falls was named as one of the 10 best swimming holes in the United States by Travel and Leisure magazine. Make a Splash Also just a stone’s skip away from Cookeville are three top-rated, Corps of Engineers lakes for those who fancy water sports, swimming, fishing and boating. Center Hill Lake is a 64-mile-long reservoir near Smithville. It consists of 415 miles of shoreline and 18,200 acres of deep, pure water that is home to many species of fish. Popular activities include fishing, hunting, camping, picnicking, boating, canoeing and hiking. Cordell Hull Dam is located at mile marker 313.5 on the Cumberland River in Smith County, 48 miles east of Nashville and 26 miles northwest of Cookeville. With 381 miles of shoreline and 22 boat-launching ramps, Cordell Hull Lake offers a fishing opportunity for anyone with or without a boat. Dale Hollow Lake, voted #4 Lake in the Nation to “Float Your Boat” by USA Today and the #1 Houseboating Lake in North America by boaters at PickASlip.com, boasts 620 miles of shoreline and more than 14 commercial marinas. The pristine quality of the lake is important to the Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery just below the dam, which produces 1.5 million trout annually. Take in a Tasting If you enjoy the fruit of the vine, Putnam County now has its very own winery to tour and enjoy. DelMonaco Winery offers free tastings of their award-winning wines, free tours of their winery and vineyards, wine clubs with three levels of membership and a gift shop featuring items for the connoisseur or novice. The 52-acre winery also offers four rooms for meetings and special events.

You can fill up on live music, crafts and barbecue each September at Fall FunFest, gobble up gumbo from a handmade ceramic bowl at Cookin on the Square, take in a train excursion at the Cookeville Depot Museum, or enjoy many other events we have planned throughout the year. And be sure to visit the West Side after dark on Fridays, when the vintage neon sign atop the old Cream City Ice Cream building lights up the night sky.

A Community-Wide Commitment to Wellness Whether you’re looking to stay fit and healthy or to become so once more, you’ll find numerous ways to get moving, from our 14 well-tended parks, which include three lakes and many winding trails, to our active recreation programs; numerous fitness facilities; and nearby hiking, biking and boating opportunities. In fact, our entire community has gotten into the act of staying active through the Get Fit Highlands Challenge, hosted each spring and fall by the Highlands Health Care Committee, which works to promote a healthy lifestyle in the four counties of the Highlands. The Get Fit Challenge is a friendly competition through which area businesses and organizations in Jackson, Overton, Putnam and White counties can demonstrate their employees’ fitness and community involvement. The goal of the challenge is to create awareness of the importance of physical fitness in our daily lives. The goal for each participant in the challenge is to do some form of physical activity five times a week for 30 minutes a day and then to log their points on the GetFitTN website, which also offers a way to 23 c o o k e v i ll e- P u t n a m c o u n t y, t e nn e s s e e + Ch amber of Commerce | ADVERTISEME N T s health track nutrition. The website tallies the individual’s score and then adds their points to the total for their organization and county. Businesses and organizations compete with each other to have the overall winning team, and the county with the largest percentage of residents completing the challenge is declared the winning county. A media event announcing the winners is held at the end of the competition, and each person who completes the challenge is entered into a drawing for prizes provided by area businesses. More than 204 businesses and organizations with a total of 2,427 individual participants have competed in the Get Fit Highlands Challenge to date. According to a survey conducted by Tennessee Tech University, 47 percent of participants reported losing weight, 81 + continued percent said they felt better, and 61 percent felt like the program was motivating. “We know that our residents are interested in improving their health and enjoy participating in this friendly competition with our sister counties,” said George Halford, Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce president and CEO. “Anything we can do to promote health and fitness in the Highlands is a real win for all of us.” And now the Get Fit Challenge is winning awards of its own. It won the 2012 Shining Star Award, presented by the Tennessee Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Health.
