About Pittman Center, Tennessee

Just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg nestled in the mountains of Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the quaint community of Pittman Center. Pittman Center provides a unique blend of history, culture, and natural scenic beauty that captures the imagination. Proud of their mountain heritage, residents work hard to preserve the historic landscape and mountain culture that beckons visitors to come and stay awhile. Time seems to stand still as one ventures forth to rediscover the beauty of the natural surroundings and rich history that defines the Pittman Center experience.

While staying in Pittman Center there is much to do and see including fishing, hiking, swimming, golfing, bird watching, wildlife viewing, visiting the historic City Hall, and strolling across the covered bridge – a little something for everyone. The Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is within city limits and provides additional recreational opportunities for the entire family.


The Town of Pittman Center City Hall will be closed on Thursday, November 25th, and Friday, November 26th in observance of Thanksgiving. The office will reopen on Monday, November 29th at 8 a.m. 


Pending the weather conditions, Pittman Center City Hall will celebrate Yule log on Friday, December  3rd at 5 p.m. We hope that the community will come and join us for some cookies, hot chocolate, and a visit with Santa while you warm up by the fire and hear the history of the Yule Log and the Nativity Story. 

***Please note that the event will be canceled if there is rain in the area***
