Monroe County

offers an unprecedented quality of life. With majestic mountains, stunning Tellico Lake, charming small towns and impressive historic sites, this county has a lot to offer. The Cherokee National Forest encompasses approximately one-third of the county. The estimated population is almost 45,000. With the beautiful mountains, mild climate, Tellico Lake, historical sites, and lots of small-town charm, Monroe County offers something to please almost everyone. The county includes four incorporated towns, each with its own distinct personality. Madisonville is the county seat and is the childhood home of the late Sen. Estes Kefauver. The county Courthouse, built in 1892, sits in the middle of downtown and has been named an historic site and landmark. The City of Madisonville and local volunteers raised money to create a Veterans Memorial Park and the large American flag at the park can be seen from miles around as people travel on Highway 411 and Highway 68. Madisonville also is home to Hiwassee College, a two-year United Methodist Church college founded in 1849. Sweetwater is the county’s largest town and is located just off Interstate 75. The historic downtown area has been revitalized in past years and features many antique and gift shops and an art gallery. Just outside Sweetwater, people can explore America’s largest underground lake at The Lost Sea. Each weekend hundreds of people can be found searching for bargains at Sweetwater Flea Market, a large indoor flea market just off Interstate 75 Exit 60. Sweetwater also has a historic residential section. Vonore is best know for its historical sites and Tellico Lake, a popular attraction for fishermen

Monroe County Chamber of Commerce Guidebook 2012

and boaters. Historical sites include the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum and Fort Loudoun State Historic Area. The museum is a tribute to the Cherokee who lived in East Tennessee and Sequoyah, who was born near modern day Vonore, and created a written language for the Cherokee. Fort Loudoun is part of the state park system and features a reconstructed 18th-century fort, trails, fishing pier, picnic areas and a visitors center and museum. The town also is home to the county’s largest industrial parks including several boat manufacturers and a new biofuel refinery. Tellico Plains is the county’s smallest town but during the weekends is a popular spot for motorcyclists and car club enthusiasts driving the scenic Cherohala Skyway. The town features several art galleries and antique stores, a book store, the Cherohala Skyway visitors center and the Charles Hall museum. And as the gateway to the Cherokee National Forest and the Skyway, there are miles of trails to explore, cool mountain streams to wade and fish in and picturesque waterfalls. Coker Creek, an unincorporated community in the southern corner of the county, is home to several art galleries and Buck Bald, which offers a 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains.
