Welcome to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Pigeon Forge, in East Tennessee, is surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains and beautiful scenery for every season. Our town is made up of a delightful mix of life-long residents, young families attracted by nature’s beauty, and folks who have chosen to spend their retirement years in Pigeon Forge.

Early history of our town dates back to before the Revolutionary War. Our first business was established in the early 1800s. While Pigeon Forge once was a small farming community, the lure of the mountains brought more and more visitors to the area, and new businesses were established to meet the needs of these travelers.

Today, Pigeon Forge is a major tourist destination, and while we take care of more than 10 million people who visit each year, our residents are still our top priority. In addition to our Smoky Mountain scenery, Pigeon Forge has plenty of parks and recreational areas, an outstanding community center and public library, as well as an excellent educational system that ranges from pre -school through high school.

You’ll find Pigeon Forge is an all-American town with a wholesome atmosphere, brimming with family values and old-fashioned Southern hospitality. If you’re thinking about moving here, you should find answers to any questions you may have on the pages of this site.
