Co-Op featured in Southern Living Magazine!
A big thank you to SOUTHERN LIVING MAGAZINE for mentioning our CUMBERLAND GAP ARTISTS CO-OP in their November issue, along with a history of our Historic Little Hamlet and other businesses. The National Park also received a nice mention. Check us out!
Cumberland Gap, Tennessee
Population: 494 Nestled at the foot of the Cumberland Mountains about an hour and a half north of Knoxville (near the spot where the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia meet), the town of
Cumberland Gap was at one time known as the “Gateway to the West.” It is surrounded by the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, which stretches into all three states and features some beautiful mountain views, cascading waterfalls, and the 18.5-mile-long Gap Cave. This tiny hamlet offers a variety of outdoor and indoor attractions. Shop the nonprofit Cumberland Gap Artists’ Co-Op with works by 28 local artisans, and grab a table at Angelo’s in the Gap or The Pineapple Tea Room. You’ll find them on the few blocks that make up downtown. After checking into The Olde Mill Inn Bed & Breakfast, head over to the nearby Little Congress Bicycle Museum. Founded by R.E. McClanahan II—a rather eccentric local historian, movie theater operator, judge, and (of course) bicycle enthusiast—the museum contains his unique collection of two-wheelers dating from the early 1800s. townofcumberlandgap.com
