This small mountain settlement is perched on both sides of the Hiwassee River. White settlement took place here in 1840, shortly after Cherokee residents were forced out; in fact, Junebug and Tieskee Creeks derive their names from two Cherokees who farmed this land prior to the Cherokee Removal. Many of the buildings in town are listed on the National Register of Historic Places; today, the community is a favorite spot for outdoor enthusiasts.
