It is fast becoming choice town for residency for many Tennesseans; so, let’s find out why.The outdoors of the town leaves much to be yearned for; whether you are just a visitor or a resident. Cove Lake at Cove Lake State Park and Lake Norris offer residents an excellent opportunity to engage in water sporting activities.
