Harriman’s name came from a Union general in the Civil War who observed that the location would make a remarkable town. A planned community from the beginning, and known as the Town that Temperance built, Harriman was mapped out in a grid pattern on December 25, 1890. Notice elegant Victorian architecture in some homes in Cornstalk Heights, 100 of which are properties in the National Register. Take a peak inside some of the homes during their Christmas Home Tour or hear about its spooky history during the Haunting of Harriman. Immerse yourself in culture at the Tennessee Medieval Faire or spend the day antiquing downtown. Small town America comes to life on Saturdays as vintage car collectors line downtown Roane St. to show off their treasures.
Harriman is sure to delight you with its charm, culture and hospitality.
