The Upper Cumberland Area

Nestled in the majestic hills of the Upper Cumberland area of Tennessee, Gainesboro is a small historic community on the banks of the Cordell Hull Lake. Located only 65 miles Northeast of Nashville, Gainesboro provides beautiful scenery, a wealth of commerce, and plenty of recreation opportunities.

The Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee has long been recognized as an area rich with outdoor recreation and wild life. Three major lakes, Cordell Hull Lake, Dale Hollow Lake, and Center Hill Lake offer wonderful water sports, fishing, and camping. Numerous state parks and golf courses add to the enjoyment of this region, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only a couple of hours drive. Cookeville, the hub of the Upper Cumberland area, is ranked one of the top 5 most economical cities in the nation by the American Chamber of Commerce Researchers Association. Also, Rand McNally ranks the Upper Cumberland area as one of the top 10 places to retire in America.
