The unincorporated community of Georgetown (est. 1837) was named for George Fields, a prominent local Cherokee farmer. Today, the Land Trust for Tennessee has helped to preserve the beautiful farmland on both sides of Hwy 60, keeping the landscape much as it was when Cherokee families lived, worshipped and farmed in this community. While driving through Georgetown, you might catch a glimpse of roaming buffaloes on the right side of Hwy 60, designated as the auto route of the Cherokee Trail of Tears. Also note the large 1800s rectangular stone barn, listed on the National Historic Register.
