Join us at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center to celebrate the cultural heritage of East Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains region. Our gallery exhibits, educational programs, demonstrations and festivals guide you on an historic journey through time to visit the diverse cultures of Townsend and Tuckaleechee Cove.

Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center’s mission is to preserve, protect and promote the unique history and rich culture of those that inhabited the Great Smoky Mountains region. In doing this, we wish to preserve the history of the residents and Native Americans who inhabited the East Tennessee mountain communities.
