Rocky Top, TN Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Rocky Top - Hometown Realty

Rocky Top, Tennessee, has a history closely tied to its coal mining heritage. Originally known as Coal Creek, the town gained national attention during the Coal Creek War of the 1890s when miners protested against harsh working conditions. The town was later incorporated as Lake City in 1936 but changed its name to Rocky Top in 2014, embracing a moniker popularized by a bluegrass song and seeking economic revitalization through tourism and development.

In terms of real estate, Rocky Top offers a mix of housing options, including single-family homes and potentially historic residences that reflect the town’s industrial past. The real estate market may cater to those seeking a close-knit community with access to outdoor activities, as the town is surrounded by the Appalachian foothills and is near Norris Lake.
