About Dandridge

Founded in 1783, Dandridge was named after First President George Washington's wife, Martha Dandridge Washington, and is the second oldest town in Tennessee. It was established as settlers came across the Appalachian Mountains moving west. The town was known for is fertile land along the French Broad River, but when the Tennessee Valley Authority built the Douglas Dam to generate electrical power in 1942, many of these farms were destroyed by the Douglas Dam Reservoir. Dandridge is still in existence today because of a group of citizens that lobbied for a barrier to keep the reservoir from flooding the town.  

The charming downtown area is a registered National Historic District with places to shop, eat, and landmarks to view.  Walking downtown you'll find the Tinsley Bible Drug. Jefferson County Courthouse, and the Dandridge Pub. Make sure to grab a self-guided tour map from the town's Visitor Center to see 21 historic downtown landmarks and 17 sites that are only a short drive away. 

Dandridge offers residents a mixture of both rural yet suburban living. Only 9 miles from Jefferson City and 18 miles from Sevierville makes it a convenient location to get to and from popular spots in East Tennessee.
