History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Originally founded in 1890 as a model industrial city by Hanniball Kimball with support of the British Anglo-American Company, Limited. The location was chosen to be similar to another planned city, Colorado Springs. It was backed by mountains with three miles of frontage on the Tennessee River and rail connections on the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway. Unfortunately, soon after selling 321 lots the town president, Logan Roots left for England taking the money and the company failed.

The town suffered damage after it was struck by an EF 2 tornado on November 14, 2007. The storm left 9 injured along a damage path of around 2 miles in length.[1]
