About the Cumberland Gap
The Cumberland Gap is a natural passage in the mountains near the point where Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, meet. It was named by Dr. Thomas Walker, and Daniel Boone. During the Civil War, it was considered a strategic location held, at times, by both Confederate and Union Forces. Cumberland Gap became Postal Town in 1803.
First known as the Gateway to the West, then as The Stronghold during the Civil War, Cumberland Gap is now known for its peaceful location, specialty shops, and the beautiful National Historical Park. Located approximately 50 miles north of Knoxville, Cumberland Gap is a great place to spend the day or a delightful weekend.
