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.

The City of Crossville Police Department extends heartfelt “Thank You”!

The outpouring of support from the civilian and law enforcement community continues to be overwhelming as the members of the Crossville Police Department bid a final farewell to K9 Officer Cain.

August 9th, the Crossville Police Department was open for public visitation that brought a steady stream of hundreds of well-wishers. On Thursday, August 10th, law enforcement and fellow K9 units, from across the state, participated in a memorial procession, which traveled Main Street to the Duer Soccer Complex, where a memorial ceremony was held that included a 21-gun salute and the final radio call for K9 Cain.

The City of Crossville Police Department wishes to extend our deepest appreciation for the enormous showing of support that we have experienced. We wish to thank everyone in attendance at the ceremonies and those that helped organize the events. Thank you to Heritage Funeral Home, Fort Oglethorpe, GA., for the beautiful gift of the memorial banners, as well as those who submitted the artwork, especially Nicole Pulliam, with the Fallen Hero Project, for her amazing artwork, included on the banners. Thank you to Mike Moser, The Crossville Chronicle, Cumberland County Bank and all who donated and participated in the terrific memorial dinner.

The kindness and generosity of our community, and those who support our officers and mission throughout the country have been incredible! Thank you ALL!

5 Local Industries Report Investments of Over $84 Million

In 2008, the City of Crossville accepted $1,000,000 from the U.S. Department of Commerce for an Economic Development Administration grant to assist in funding an upgrade of the wastewater treatment plant capacity. As part of the application, the City talked to 5 local industries about their expansion plans in the coming years and used those plans as justification for the need to expand the capacity of the wastewater treatment plant. As required by the grant, the City Clerk recently filed a 9-year report on these same 5 industries. The results were outstanding and further demonstrated the value of working with our local industries to assist them in expanding their operations. During the 9-year period, the 5 industries reported a total of 685 new jobs created, with investments totaling $84,028,744.

Mayor James Mayberry commented that "We are constantly working with our local industries to support them any way we can, whether it be infrastructure needs or workforce development. We also continue to work with the County, the Chamber of Commerce, Tennessee Department of Economic Development and TVA to promote our amenities and what our community has to offer to potential industries for even more diversified job opportunities for our citizens. As shown by this report, the investment from local, state, and federal agencies yields great returns for our local economy."

Chamber of Commerce President Brad Allamong concluded "While these type of capital improvements put a strain on limited local tax dollars, this $1,000,000 grant clearly shows how these investments can pay-off in the long term. Anyone would jump at an investment that would give us $84 to $1 commitment-even if that investment would pay out over nine to ten years! What is more promising is that fact that through this waste water expansion, we will continue to see returns in the years to come benefiting both business and our local citizens. A really great deal for everyone."
