Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the City of Crossville, the fastest growing rural community in the State of Tennessee. We pride ourselves in offering something for everyone, from beautiful mountain scenery to pristine water ways, some of the finest recreational facilities anywhere, great shopping, local dining, museums, and one of the top regional theatres, Cumberland County Playhouse, "Tennessee's Family Theatre."  Our hospital, Cumberland Medical Center, is fully accredited and is an acute care hospital offering all private patient rooms. 

Crossville offers a wonderful place to raise a family, but if you're looking to retire soon, Crossville is one of the top retirement destinations in America!  Fairfield Glade, Lake Tansi Village, and nearby Uplands are all outstanding choices.  With extremely low property taxes and no state income tax, it's no wonder Retirement Magazine has rated Crossville so highly. 

Please take time to navigate our website to find out more about us. The calendar of events is a good start to see what events are upcoming that you might be interested in.  We have many civic groups that are in need of volunteers.  We can put you in touch with any that you are either interested in or would like to know more about.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 931-484-5113.

"Crossville, Tennessee, it's just better here."

From 1938 to 1978 the theatre provided a movie house to a small Tennessee community. It hosted entertainment events that featured Grand Ole Opry stars and was the site for scrap metal drives and the sale of War Bonds during World War II.

The doors of the Palace Theatre closed in 1978 and would have failed to open again had it not been for the effort of various citizens, fund raising and Federal Grant money that was provided. In 2001 the restored three story building was able to open featuring a design of both Art Deco and Art Moderne styles.

City of Crossville-Special Census

The City of Crossville is conducting a Special Census to update Crossville’s population. This will enable the city to receive its fair share of state-shared taxes. Enumerators will be going to all homes in Crossville beginning approximately February 1. The only information that will be requested is the name of all persons residing in the household. The workers will have identification badges to assure residents that they are working for the City on this project. The cooperation of all our residents will be appreciated.
