The History & Background of Jefferson City
Jefferson City, Tennessee began in 1788 as a tiny community that called itself Mossy Creek after the brilliant emerald moss that lined the banks of a small river. Early settlers used the waterway for several grist mills, and the population grew rapidly. This was the site of the infamous Battle of Mossy Creek during the Civil War. Residents changed the name to Jefferson City in 1901, as they were often called “mossbacks” when they traveled to other towns.
The city claims a superb location for small-town living. Situated in the Appalachian foothills, Jefferson City residents have the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in their backyard. Two TVA-operated lakes lie within a few minutes’ drive — Cherokee Lake and Douglas Lake, which provide some of the finest fishing in Eastern Tennessee. Outdoor enthusiasts find their pick of excellent camping, boating, hiking and climbing.
