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
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.
