Welcome to the City of Crossville! We are located atop the beautiful Cumberland Plateau on Interstate 40, only a short drive to three metropolitan cities. Our 2,000 foot elevation offers a mild, four season climate year round. Our rural area offers an abundance of outdoor possibilities, with mountainous wildlife reserves, lakes, streams, and the Cumberland Mountain State Park.
We are known as the Golf Capital of Tennessee. With nine pristine courses in our community, Crossville has become a golfers' paradise of national recognition; however, the opportunities and activities are endless. Our Cumberland County Playhouse serves more than 165,000 visitors annually and the historic Palace Theatre on Main Street is always active. We are also the location of the United States Chess Federation headquarters, a restored railroad Depot & Caboose Visitor's Center, and part of the World's Largest Yard Sale on Highway 127 North.
Our youth opportunities abound with nine elementary schools and two high schools and we join the State of Tennessee promoting two years free post-secondary education at our Tennessee College of Applied Technology,

"Crossville, Tennessee, it's just better here."
From 1938 to 1978 the theatre provided a movie house to a small Tennessee community. It hosted entertainment events that featured Grand Ole Opry stars and was the site for scrap metal drives and the sale of War Bonds during World War II.
The doors of the Palace Theatre closed in 1978 and would have failed to open again had it not been for the effort of various citizens, fund raising and Federal Grant money that was provided. In 2001 the restored three story building was able to open featuring a design of both Art Deco and Art Moderne styles.
Award winning recreation. Crossville's parks offer tournament action for baseball, softball and soccer. Plus, relaxation at our beautiful Meadow Park Lake. Outdoor activities for the entire family.
