Dear Visitor,

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,

Please take time to navigate our website to find out more about us. The calendar of events is a good start to see what events are upcoming that you might be interested in.  We have many civic groups that are in need of volunteers.  We can put you in touch with any that you are either interested in or would like to know more about.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 931-484-5113.

"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.

Protect Your Water Pipes During Cold Weather

The City of Crossville Water Utility department is advising home and business owners to take precautions to protect their pipes during cold weather.  Exposed water pipes and fixtures can freeze when the temperature dips below freezing.  Taking these precautions can help prevent pipes from freezing and breaking:

  • Cover your water meter box/lid with a rubber mat or a bail of straw, etc.
  • Disconnect hoses from outdoor spigots.  It is also a good idea to insulate the spigot with a cover.
  • Insulate exposed pipes and backflow preventers.
  • Let an indoor faucet drip.
  • Know where the water shut-off valve is in the event of an emergency.
  • If you do work on your water lines in the home, DO NOT leave the meter box lid off.  If you leave the lid off, the service will freeze and damage will occur.

These few steps can help prevent the likelihood of frozen water pipes and expensive repair bills.

Cellphone Use Prohibited in School Zones

Starting January 1st, 2018, it will be a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $50 — for a person to knowingly operate a motor vehicle in any marked school zone in this state, when a warning flasher or flashers are in operation, and talk on a hand-held mobile telephone while the vehicle is in motion.

However, the offense is not committed if the telephone is equipped with a hands-free device, for drivers 18 years of age and older.

A driver under age 18 is breaking the law talking either using a hands-free or handheld while driving through an active school zone.

There are many monitored school zones in Crossville and Cumberland County, with a lot of children and traffic. Please be aware of this new law and be careful around our children.
