Hwy 33 takes you to Sneedville, originally called “Greasy Rock” for a popular spot where hunters dressed skins and piled meat on a large rock. Once the seat of Hancock County, it was named Sneedville to honor W.H. Sneed, a Knoxville attorney who helped establish
the county. The town’s bluegrass heritage
includes legendary pickers Jimmy Martin
and Doyle Lawson, who both grew up here.
