In Northeastern Tennessee, along the Kentucky and Virginia borders sit four counties that make up Point Broadband’s Rural Tennessee service area. Claiborne, Hancock, Sullivan, and Washington Counties are nestled at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. With history, culture, festivals, and outdoors adventures awaiting, there is something for everyone in this corner of the Volunteer State.
- Claiborne County
Established in 1801, Claiborne County was named for a Virginia tidewater aristocrat, William C.C. Claiborne. Claiborne was one of the first judges on the Tennessee Superior Court and one of Tennessee’s first representatives in Congress.
- Hancock County
Set in Central Appalachia, Hancock County, Tennessee was established in 1844. Named after Revolutionary War hero, John Hancock, is home to Elrod Falls and the Kyles Ford Hiking Trail.
- Sullivan County
Founded in 1779, as a part of North Carolina, Sullivan County was a part of the extra-legal State of Franklin from 1784 to 1788. Named for John Sullivan, a Revolutionary War General, Sullivan County is the home to Warriors Path, Observation Knob, and Steel Creek.
- Washington County
In the Southern Appalachian Mountains sits Tennessee’s oldest county. Like Sullivan County, Washington County was a part of the State of Franklin from 1784 through 1788. Sullivan County is home to one of the nation’s most authentic historic districts for the period of 1790 to 1870.
