The Historic Central Hotel
A Rich History
Central Hotel was built in the late 1800s on the public square in Sevierville, TN. The original frame building burned to the ground in 1923, but was rebuilt in 1938. At the time it was the only phone and call station for Sevier Co. In 1940, President Roosevelt stayed at the hotel on his trip to dedicate the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and in 1968 the Sevier County Bank purchased the hotel and installed a vault that remains in the building on the main level. Today, the Central Hotel echoes the rich history of Sevier County in the attention to detail that went into crafting each room and is a beacon of a new era in the history of Sevierville.
