Our rich history dates back to the 1880's when our founder, Alexander Arthur, took interest in this unique area. Built inside the indention of a meteorite crater, early Middlesboro was called "Little Las Vegas" by some and "The Pittsburg of the South" by many.
We are the home to ragtime music and the oldest continuously played golf course in the United States! Sitting at the foothills of both a National and State park, Middlesboro is an outdoorsman's dream.
Our goal as community is to preserve the historic atmosphere and small town charm in Middlesboro. So stop on by and take a look around; Who knows, you just might stay awhile!
