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.

Instructions for vehicles stopping with school buses. 



Grassy Branch Bridge is closed to all public access.  



We are aware of the damage to the wooden structure of the bridge. Staff is working with contractors to make repairs as soon as possible. Please use caution when walking across the bridge. 



For the safety of all travelers of the Grassy Branch Road, Maintenance will be working on the ditches for approximately the next 3-4 weeks. The ditches will be dug out and filled with filler and rip rap stone to bring them up to level with the pavement to create a safer area for vehicles that might leave the pavement. This will help widen the City portion of Grassy Branch Road which will be paved later this summer.
