    The Sequatchie Valley was part of Cherokee lands until 1805, when the Cherokee ceded it to the U.S. as part of the Treaty of Tellico.

  • Pig-N-Catch Restaruant

    Tony and I was at Fall Creek Falls State Park hiking all day and we drove down to Pikeville for some late afternoon lunch. We drove through the town and I took some pictures of some lovely old homes in the Historical District. The town was so dead and quiet. We didn't really have many restaurants to choose from and the Pig-N-Catch was the prettiest...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This roadside farm market, operated by a mother/daughter team, is open year round, but it especially shines in late summer and autumn when the pumpkins are harvested. Other farm fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. are available in season. The selection is abundant and the prices are very fair.

    Even out of season, this is a great place to get homemade jams, jellies, apple butter, pie fillings and other home canned goods. Also, you'll enjoy the fresh baked goodies. The folks are friendly and they work hard to deserve your business. Stop in here once and you'll be back.
