Gainesboro | Tennessee Vacation


This is one of TennesseeÂ’s oldest towns, tucked away in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains. ItÂ’s easy to see that the original AveryÂ’s Trace (see box on page 23) travelers found this area one of the most difficult to travel but also one of the most beautiful, earning it the nickname “The Switzerland of the Upper Cumberland.” ItÂ’s home to the annual Poke Sallet Festival, celebrating the native poke weed plant.
