More About Unicoi and Limestone Cove by Janice Willis Barnett
 
 
 
Overview
Surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest s blue mountain ranges, Unicoi and Limestone Cove are part of America s first western frontier. From their beginnings in the famed Watauga and Nolichucky settlements of the 1770s until today, Unicoi and Limestone Cove s history has reflected the boom times, depressions, and wars of the Appalachian region and the nation. Bell Cemetery in Limestone Cove is still a reminder of the Civil War in northeastern Tennessee. Each year, grounds near Davis Springs provide the stage for the reenactment of a Confederate ambush and massacre of Union recruits at the home of Dr. David Bell in 1863. The streets in the old residential section of Unicoi are a reminder of the model town planned by speculators, who came to Unicoi and Limestone Cove during the industrial boom of the late 1880s, eager to purchase the area s timber and mineral-rich land. Images of America: Unicoi and Limestone Cove contains rare images of Unicoi during this time, including photographs of the train and narrow-gauge railroad built to haul timber from Limestone Cove and Unaka Mountain."
