History

Crossville developed at the intersection of a branch of the Great Stage Road, which connected the Knoxville area with the Nashvillearea, and the Kentucky Stock Road, a cattle drovers' path connecting Middle Tennessee with Kentucky and later extending toChattanooga. These two roads are roughly paralleled by modern US-70 and US-127, respectively.

Around 1800, an early European-American settler named Samuel Lambeth opened a store at this junction, and the small community that developed around it became known as Lambeth's Crossroads. The store was located at what has become the modern intersection of Main Street and Stanley Street, just south of the courthouse. By the time a post office was established in the 1830s, the community had taken the name of "Crossville." In the early 1850s, James Scott, a merchant from nearby Sparta, purchased the Lambeth store and renamed it Scott's Tavern.

When Cumberland County was formed in 1856, Crossville, being nearest the center of the county, was chosen as county seat. Scott donated the initial 40 acres (160,000 m2) for the erection of a courthouse and town square.

Crossville and Cumberland County suffered rampant pillaging throughout the Civil War as the well-developed roads made the area accessible to both occupying Union and Confederate forces and bands of renegade guerrillas. With divided communities and families, there was vicious guerrilla warfare, and residents suffered as if there were major battles in the area. The county was divided throughout the conflict, sending a roughly equal number of troops to both sides.

After World War I, US 70 helped connect the town and area to markets for its produce and goods. Additional highways built after World War II improved transportation in the region.

During the Great Depression, the federal government's Subsistence Homestead Division initiated a housing project south of Crossville known as the Cumberland Homesteads. The project's purpose was to provide small farms for several hundred impoverished families. The project's recreational area would later become the nucleus forCumberland Mountain State Park.

 

 

 

 

 

Geography

Crossville has long been a great crossroads of East and Middle Tennessee

Crossville is located at 35°57′15″N 85°1′53″W (35.954221, -85.031267).The city is situated atop the Cumberland Plateau amidst the headwaters of theObed River, which slices a gorge north of Crossville en route to its confluence with the Emory River to the northeast. Crossville is roughly halfway between the plateau's eastern escarpment along Walden Ridge and its western escarpment along the Highland Rim. Several small lakes are located on the outskirts of Crossville, including Lake Tansi to the south, Lake Holiday to the west, and Byrd Lake at nearby Cumberland Mountain State Park. The average elevation of Crossville is approximately 1,890 feet (576 m) above sea level.

Crossville developed at the intersection of two major stage roads by which settlers moved through the area. The roads were gradually widened, improved and turned into paved roads. Two major federal highways: U.S. Route 70, which traverses Tennessee from east to west, and U.S. Route 127, which traverses Tennessee from north to south, now roughly follow the old routes. Interstate 40, which runs roughly parallel to U.S. 70, passes through the northern part of Crossville. Crossville is approximately 30 miles (48 km) east ofCookeville, 70 miles (110 km) north of Chattanooga, and 70 miles (110 km) west of Knoxville.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 15.1 square miles (39 km2), of which 14.7 square miles (38 km2) is land and 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2) (2.32%) is water.
