Welcome to the Town of Huntsville!
As the county seat of Scott County, Tennessee, we are centrally located atop the Cumberland Plateau, just fifteen miles from Interstate 75 and 50 miles from Knoxville.
In addition to hosting the offices of Scott County Government, Huntsville has a strong industrial base, such as Great Dane Trailers, Tennier Industries and Scott Appalachia Industries conducting operations here.
Our residents enjoy a plan of services that includes free garbage and debris pickup, reduced sewer rates and an excellent fire department. Our fire department has an ISO rating of six within the Town of Huntsville, an outstanding rating for a small town, mostly volunteer department. We also have a community pool that is open seasonally and a growing network of parks and greenways.
We’re proud of our educational opportunities in Huntsville. Our public schools are award-winning and our residents can obtain two-year or four-year degrees from Roane State Community College and Tennessee Technological University (working with RSCC) without ever leaving Huntsville.
Huntsville is also quickly becoming known as one of the Southeast’s premier destinations for off-highway recreation. Brimstone Recreation, LLC, is headquartered just off the beautiful Courthouse Mall in downtown Huntsville and provides ATV riding and other forms of recreation on several thousand acres of the Cumberland Mountains just outside of town. Nearby, the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area offers another 140,000 acres that are popular among ATV enthusiasts.
Our strong sense of community and pride is on display at several festivals each year. Take a step back in time at the Scott County Heritage Festival in September, hosted by the Museum of Scott County, a student-build and student-operated museum on the campus of Scott High School, or enjoy concerts by some of the biggest stars in country music at the White Knuckle (May) and Yamaha SXS (September) events hosted by Brimstone Recreation. Each 4th of July, our firefighters put on one of the biggest Independence Day festivals in the region on the Courthouse Mall, featuring local music and crafts, games and contests and an enormous fireworks display.
Our hope is that our new website will be utilized by our residents and visitors alike to answer any questions you may have about our community, our city government, and the services we provide. Please take a few minutes to browse through our site. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the mayor’s office.
We’re proud of our town. We hope you will be, too.
