The Forks of the Little Pigeon River Cemetery is now a city park offering guests a chance to visit and pay their respects while learning about Sevierville history. There is also an annual Cemetery Walk featuring the stories of those who rest in the cemetery. It is free event and sponsored by the Spencer Clack chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This small cemetery contains the graves of some of the area’s first settlers, including Spencer Clack, who fought with John Sevier at the Battle of Kings Mountain in the Revolutionary War; Isaac Thomas, Sevierville’s first settler; and James McMahan, who gave the original 25 acres to establish Sevierville. It was the church yard of the Forks of the Little Pigeon River Baptist Church, which later moved and changed its name to First Baptist Church of Sevierville.
