Advantages of living in historical Grainger County

Grainger County stood at a crossroad; one of the most important crossroads in America. Centuries ago a wild herd of buffalo discovered Cumberland Gap. This “Buffalo Trace” slanted across four modern states, keeping away from lowlands or marshes where their vast weight would cause them to sink as the mastodons had in the Kentucky salt licks centuries earlier. 

The buffalo had discovered Cumberland Gap at the point where Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia came together.
