A rural community known for its scenic surroundings, Bluff City experienced several name changes before incorporating under its current name on July 1, 1887. This charming small town is centrally located to the Tri-Cities (which includes Sullivan County, TN, Johnson City, TN, Kingsport, TN, and Bristol, TN/VA), making it an ideal location for development.

The beauty of the town’s countryside is surpassed only by the potential it offers to new business and industry.
