Established as a utopian town in 1890 by the East Tennessee Land Company, this community was founded on Â“the belief in temperance can be commercialized for business profit and the betterment of mankind.Â” People came by horse and wagon, train, riverboat and foot to reach the townÂ’s Â“Great Land SaleÂ” in February of 1890. Most towns grew gradually over a period of time; Harriman exploded from just two farms to a city of nearly 4,000 residents in just two years.
