Just ten years after being settled, Maryville was incorporated in 1795 and is now the seat of Blount County. It is situated in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains with a prominent ridge-line, known as The Three Sisters, visible from nearly everywhere in the city limits. A place this old has a lot of history, and it can be seen at the two main museums in Maryville, Cades Cove Museum and the Blounts County Historical Museum. Tours are also available to see the local wildlife, both on land and under water with the Brother Bear Excursions and Rhea's Diving Services.
