“Fort Southwest Point was a federal frontier outpost at what is now Kingston TN. Constructed in 1797 and garrisoned by federal soldiers until 1811, the fort served as a major point of interaction between the Cherokee Indians and the US Government as well as a way station for early migrants traveling between Knoxville and Nashville.”

Restaurant
“Local hangout with typical bar food & drinks. Nightly specials. Bands usually on Fridays and Saturdays. Can sometimes seem seasonal and winter hours may vary. Call before you go for more definite details. Locally owned and "Tater" is a hoot once he gets a few drinks in!”
