A Southern Classic.
Historic Loudon has a deep and interesting past tracing back to the late 1700's when settlers first built homes on the banks of the Tennessee River. The busiest part of early Loudon was the waterfront, where steamboats lined the wharf to load and unload cargo. Around 1817, James Blair and family begin controlling traffic across the River. They dubbed the community Blair's Ferry, which would eventually become the town of Loudon. The small town consisted only of a steamboat landing, a store and a few houses. The town grew with the arrival of the railroad in the 1850's and was renamed Loudon in 1852. The Loudon Railroad Bridge became a key strategic objective during the Civil War. Loudon was chosen as the seat of county government in the 1870's and you can visit the beautiful County Courthouse right in the middle of town. We invite you to take our self-guided Walking Tour of Historic Loudon to see the significant architecture and symbols of our past and learn the stories of the men and women who shaped the future.
