1.  Don't compare your market to what the national media is saying.  Remember that every market is different.  Talk to several professionals before you decide what you are going to do.2.  Get your home inspected.  By doing this you have addressed any potential problems before the buyer is able to use them against you during the negotiation process.3.  Prepare your home for market.  Do this by getting your home spruced up.  New paint, pressure wash the outside. Clean the inside. Make your house smell good.Get rid of the pet/smoking odors. Put your best foot forward and make your house sparkle.  Don't just asume that you can give a paint or carpet allowance.  Your home may never get a second look.  We are in a buyers market.4.  Hire a real estate agent that will make your home their prior...

The Cumberland Mountain State Park has the largest masonary structure built by the CCC in the 1930's.  This bridge is the most photographed structure in the county with good reason - it is beautiful.  This is how it has looked since it was built during the depression...      This is how it looks today.  Byrds Lake was drained last week so the state could do some much needed repairs.  The flood gate is busted and can not be repaired with the water in the lake.  The lake was drained into Daddys Creek taking with it the lucky fish.  The estimates vary as to how long the lake will be drained. I have heard from 1 month to 6 months.  The state is going to clean the stones and it will look as splendid as it did 80 years ago.  The state park was originally a recreation area set aside for the fo...

Grassy Cove Segment of the Cumberland Trail is a streneous hike.  You are hiking to the top of a mountain.  Going up and down my ears pop from the change of altitude.  It is a pretty hike.  There is not a lot of wildlife on this mountain because there is no water to keep them living there full time.  The hickory nuts were more plentiful than acorns.     This is not an easy trail.         From the Overlook you can see Grassy Cove.  Probably the largest sink in North America. It is 8 miles long and 3 miles wide.  You are looking down 1300 feet.  At one time Grassy Cove had a larger population than Crossville.  Grassy Cove is on the National Natural Landmark.  In the back you are seeing Black Mountain.  It looks much like it did 200 years ago.  A few farm houses and barns and the greenest ...

The Cumberland Trail became Tennessee 58th State Park in 1998.  It is not one continuous trail.  It is 300 miles of trail beginning in Cumberland Gap National Park (KY) and extending to Chickamuaga  Chattanooga National Military Park.  The Grassy Cove Segment is in Cumberland County.   This segment of the trail is accessed in Crab Orchard.  At the top of the mountain at the beginning of the trail is a stone chimney.  It is the remenants of an old homestead that belonged to Dr. A. C. Gill a professor of minerology.   He purchased Black Mountain property in 1890 for a summer home.  All that remains is the spring house and the chimney.  They opened their home to the children of the Cumberland Mountain School.  Dr. Gill died 1 month after his retirement.  Mrs. Gill turned over her 500 acres...

MOLD INFORMATION FOR BUYERS AND SELLERS· Buyers and/or sellers may have the property inspected for the presence of mold. The cost for such inspections varies depending on the size of the property, the extent of the mold present, the type of expert conducting the inspection and other factors. · Real estate agents and brokers are not experts on mold. For more information on mold, consult the resources listed at the end of this document or contact an expert. · Because there are presently no licensing or inspection standards for mold in properties, mold inspections should be discussed with more than one expert. Most experts will discuss the limitations of the inspections. For example, an air-sampling test that does not reveal extraordinary levels of toxic mold does not necessarily mean that...

   The Stone Memorial Girls Golf Team is headed to Regional Golf Tournament at Kodiak, Tennessee.  The girls placed third in the district tournament.  Overall for the season they had only two losses.  Monday when they played at Centennial Golf Course in Oak Ridge it was record high temperatures.  There was a issue over not having enough water on the course.  It was hard on all the kids playing.  Remember junior golf the players walk and carry their own clubs.  Hopefully tomorrow the course will be more responsible and GOOD LUCK GIRLS. The one on the left is mine.  Brian Cooper is representing The Stone Memorial Boys as an individual.  He has consistently lead the boys team all season.  GOOD LUCK BRIAN

The Upper Cumberland Geneology Support Group met tonight.  The guest speaker was Martha Hale Kemmer.  She is a very interesting speaker.  Martha is a six generation native of Grassy Cove and it is her passion to relay her family history.  Grassy Cove was settled in 1801 by a caravan of settlers from Virginia.  They were veterans of the Revolutionary War that were looking to collect on land grants.  Grassy Cove is part of the Cumberland Mountains and Cumberland Plateau.  The steep and rugged terrain according to Martha was so difficult for early pioneers that it took 7 horses to pull an empty wagon up the mountains.  These settlers had climbed to the top of the Plateau and decided to explore.  They found the valley of Grassy Cove.  The trees had been burned by the Indians for hunting pur...

In the middle of the Homesteads is the Homestead Tower.  It was constructed in 1937-38 to house the goverment administrative offices of the Cumberland Homesteads.  A New Deal sub-sistance homesteading program of the Franklin d. Roosevelt administraion, following the Great Depression. The New Deal provided desperately needed jobs for the community. The building was opened as the museum in 1984 during the community's 50th anniversary celebration.  The structure is a marvel of innovative design and execution.  The octagonal stone tower houses a water tank and a winding stairway leading to a lookot platform at the top.  Most of the original 252 farmsteads can be seen from this vantage point.  Four large rooms at the base of the tower are now used for the museum displays.  There are exhibits...
