Notes
Survey number HAER TN-35-E
Building/structure dates: 1950 initial construction
Significance: The Foothills Parkway originated from the federal government's decision to locate the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Both North Carolina and Tennessee lobbied for the road, and with the announcement that the parkway would run from Virginia to North Carolina, came a promise that if the road proved successful, another parkway would be built in Tennessee. The Foothills Parkway is the result of that promise. Although not located within the parkway boundary, the Foothills Parkway is an important part of the transportation system in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, providing a scenic drive around the Tennessee side of the park.
