National Parks of East TN

GSMHC NTNL PARKS LOGOEast Tennessee is comprised of five National Parks – All five parks exhibit unique features and personalities; all of which distinguishes each park from the other.

In partnership and cooperation with the five parks of East TN, we are featuring artifacts that were generously loaned to the Heritage Center specifically for this gallery. Over time many of these artifacts will be rotated in and out in order to maintain a ‘new’ experience for our guests. The featured parks include; Big South Fork National River & Recreation, Obed Wild & Scenic River, Cumberland Gap, Andrew Johnson National Historic Site and of course…Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

All five of these parks are within 78 miles of our area and make for an easy, fun and educational day trip with your friends and family.
