Historic Site or District

ADA Accessibility Notes

The Carnegie LIbrary and Temperance Building are ADA accessible. It will vary from home to home.

This is a self guided walking tour. Because of the historic nature of our community some of our sidewalks are brick and you can expect uneven surfaces. Our community is a bit hilly in nature and you will have to navigate stairs to get to some of the homes.

Come celebrate the spirit of a Cornstalk Heights Christmas as you tour our charming turn of the century neighborhood. We have several private homes open for you to enjoy. This is a unique opportunity to see some of the finest historic homes built in Harriman, the Town that Temperance Built." You can also visit our Carnegie Library, circa 1901, one of the last remaining Carnegie Buildings in the US.

Harriman is nestled between the Great Smoky mountains and the Cumberland Plateau.
