About Rocky Top Tennessee

Most ofRocky Top is in Anderson County, which is included in the Knoxville Metropolitan Statistical Area. The town was originally known as Coal Creek, which is still the name of the stream that runs through the town.

This labor struggle, known as the Coal Creek War, was eventually resolved in the coal miners' favor with the abolition of Tennessee's convict labor program.
