Hamblen County Real Estate

A Brief Overview of Hamblen County

"The third smallest in area among the ninety-five Tennessee counties, Hamblen County is located between the Holston and the Nolichucky Rivers in a fertile, well-watered valley sheltered from the north winds by Clinch Mountain and from southern storms by the Smoky Mountains.

Hamblen County was formed in 1870 from parts of Jefferson, Grainger, and Hawkins Counties. After much controversy, the county was named for Hezekiah Hamblen, a lawyer in Hawkins County. Morristown, which was incorporated in 1855, was named county seat, but it would be four years before a county courthouse was constructed. This building, designed by architect A. C. Bruce, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places." — excerpt Tennessee Encyclopedia

Hamblen County Things to Do

  • Tennessee's die-hard UT sports fans have been known to travel great distances to support their favorite sport, team, or athlete but Hamblen County's UT Volunteers ("Vols") fans consider themselves lucky in that they can be at campus in Knoxville in a few hours (in optimal traffic conditions). To beat the rush, many choose to arrive early in the day and "tailgate" with friends and fellow fans on game day. Although the actual game may not take place until the evening, for some fans, a UT game is no less than an all-day-affair and a great way to break bread, relax, and socialize.
