Newport, Tennessee sits along the banks of the French Broad River, which became a State Scenic River in 1968. First established in 1797, Newport’s original location was along the shores of the nearby Pigeon River. Residents called it Clifton at that time, due to the craggy cliffs towering over the river. With the advent of the railroad and the construction of a depot on the French Broad, the town’s center shifted, giving rise to the name of “New Port,” and the town became the seat of picturesque Cocke County. Newport claimed 7,242 citizens during the 2000 Census.
Newport owns a colorful past, when economic hardships were such that some of its citizens sold moonshine in the first part of the last century, and others raised marijuana in the second part. Today, this is a peaceful, quaint town, with solid industries offering a good economic base. With beautiful surroundings, a strong tourist industry, and a low cost of living, Newport residents enjoy an enviable quality of life.
