Dandridge is a small town of approximately 1,900, located in Jefferson County, of which it is the county seat. It is the 2nd oldest town in Tennessee, founded in 1793, and the only one in the country named after Martha Dandridge Washington, wife of President George Washington. Located in the heart of the East Tennessee foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Dandridge is near two beautiful lakes, the Douglas and Cherokee Lakes. Both offer great fishing, boating, swimming, camping, wildlife viewing and just relaxing by the water's edge enjoying a picnic and the incredible views. Four golf courses are located in Jefferson County near the town of Dandridge. History buffs will love a walk through this picturesque town. Be sure to visit the Historical Museum at the Jefferson County Courthouse. It displays artifacts and relics from the Civil War and World Wars, plus has on display a Marriage Bond of famed frontiersman, Davy Crockett and his wife, Polly Finley. The courthouse was built in 1845 and is one of the oldest in the country that is still in use today. Dandridge is just minutes to the city of Knoxville, and near other popular southeast Tennessee attractions such as Dollywood, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and some of the best outlet shopping in the southeast.
