Visit Blount County Tennessee... Smoky Mountain Gateway
Guest Book

Online since November of 1997, theBlountWeb has served Blount County Tennessee with information
about our community and links to Blount County Businesses.

Due to the abuse in theBlountWeb Guest Book I have taken it down. It's sad that one or two people can do so much to ruin a good thing for others and I apologize for having to take the automated functions out which made it easy to leave your comments.
Please if you have a comment or suggestion use my email address to send your comments
and I will post them here.

We ate moving to Maryville TN. We would like to live in Blount County. I have more hours on severial websites trying to find the zip codes that are accepted by the sco systems. I would like to send my children to Heritage high school. All the zoning maps I have found are in color codes with no specific information. I am able to type in an exact address to locate the school, but as we are just starting to look I do not have an exact address to use. Is there anywhere I can find this information or receive any help with this matter?

Would like to contact Steve Speer regarding the 31st Infantry Regiment. My father was one of the Army men sent to help from the Phillipines to Japan during the 1923 earthquake. I have him on tape telling the story if Steve would be interested. Our service men deserve a mention of what they did to help those poor people. He can also tell you the ship they traveled on to get there, how they took nurses with them, etc. Please contact me if you are interested in his story. Thanks, June

I can search all day long and never find another community website like the Blount Web (and your other web sites related to Blount County) which continue to edify and give God the praise and glory for the work. The support of local businesses you have in the directories serves as a testimony to the citizens of the county, and a testimony to the webs sites themselves. Not many web sites dare mention any words concerning Jesus in these days.

I just want to take a moment to compliment your website,and I was delighted to see my church listed there. Our church has warm, loving people of all ages, worshipping God and hearing the word of God taught. There are no rituals, or money going where you do not wish for it to go. Calvary Chapel Blount on Gill Street tithes 1/3 of the monies given to Gospel for Asia, reaching out to teach those who do not know who Jesus is. I want to encourage anyone looking for a church to visit us. We have about 40 attending, so come see us and bring a friend.

Born and raised in Townsend, left about the age of 9. Have grave plots at Bethel. Love the area and people. I remember the logging era, dad worked for the Little River Lumber Company. I recall walking across the mill pond on logs. To do something like that today a kid would be grounded. We visit Townsend every chance we get and hope to return as we are, before returning in a box. Thanks for keeping Townsend HOME.

Just returned home from a weekend in Townsend. Had excellent service at Little River Outfitters, Fly fishing store extraordinaire! Also, stayed at the Riverstone Lodge, ate at their restaurant, great food and service. We will stay here again. And, we avoided Pigeon Forge in going into the Park. So peaceful!

This is a great sight that shows the wonderful areas The Smokies have to offer. My husband introduced me to Townsend & Cades Cove on our honeymoon 15 yrs ago and I have been hooked ever since. We lived in Roanoke, VA for 12 of those years so visits to Townsend/Cades Cove were plentiful each year. Now we live in North Central West Virginia which makes the trips not as often but our love for the area is still strong. Thank you for all the wonderful pictures and information,,, if helps to keep us informed in between our visits.

Glad to be back home in Blount County! Many years in Central Florida (it's hard on a Vol fan to live around all those 'Gators!). Just fulfilled a dream and opened a new insurance agency on E. Broadway (office is in new Blount United Way building). Blount County has a great business environment, to go along with incredibly nice people and vistas only imagined elsewhere. We are truly blessed....

Due to the attitude in these little messeges at the bottom of these pages, "due to the nature of some of these photographs (high in resolution) we ask that you have patience waiting for them to load... if, on the other hand you are a person who is impatient then you need to leave" -- i feel more offended about that, than anything to do with the quality of pictures. The word "leave" just doesn't leave me feeling at home when i come to this site. I love the smoky mountains, don't get me wrong, but I would hope for more of a subtle appology that you, "could not provide a faster loading time for dial up users, our deepest appologies".
Keep up the good work. I enjoyed your site otherwise =)

Hi there, I just love this site. I found it by accident. I recently bought a house in Maryville, TN, off of Timberline drive.(I am from Miami,FL) I want to know all I can about the area. I want to know if 'you' sell any T-Shirts with the logo you have on the first page of your web site. "Blount County Tennessee theBlountWeb". I am also looking for Maryville TN T-Shirts. I have asked around and I can't find any. Only Cracker Barrell sells TN shirts. And I bought them. If any one can help me the shirts, pls respond. I love the 'Look Rock Cam'.
Hope to hear from you.

little river lumber boxcar in 1910 in
the month of november which caused his
death and i've been unable to find any
information-so if anyone seeing this has any info or knows where i might look, please email.Thanks.Rose

My wife and I always enjoyed the fall festival. We went for three years but this year will be the exception. Except for Joe Nichols, it's just a bunch of no-talent morons who couldn't entertain an ant in a matchbox. I think it takes a lot of nerve to charge that much to see Alabama. They're a joke to me. I wouldn't go if if it was free. You can't do any better than George Jones and he didn't want that much money. He cares about his fans and quality, not money. I wish everyone could say the same. What? They say it's they're fairwell tour. Yeah. Sure. They'll be back scamming us all for more money in a couple of years and the mighty city of Maryville will probably fall for it. We've already had some great acts here. We've had George "the KING" Jones, Clay Walker, Travis Tritt, Leann Womac and Joe Diffie. Give us some more entertainment like that if you want us to be happy.

Thirty dollars for a weekend wasn't bad at all but hundreds of dollars for one night is ridiculous. We can't and won't pay it. It wouldn't matter if you had someone there worth seeing which you don't, anyway. Alabama is crap in my book and I'm not alone. The only way you could come close to competing with George Jones being here last year would be if you had Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Leann Rimes, Reba MacIntyre, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson and Randy Travis. We'd pay for that but the amount shouldn't have to be exhorbitant. That's obscene. Do the citizens of Maryville have a voice at all? Are you listening to this? Is it possible that we might occasionally have some concerts which weren't country? I mean, is there any way that we could have Alice Cooper, KISS, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Judas Priest or something in that league? I'm forty years old and I'm not the only one who feels this way. Trust me. I'm not. Let's just be fair here. Get some good and reasonable talent and don't charge a fortune. We'll be there. I promise, we will. With that being said, I'll bid you a good evening. Take care and best wishes, Frank.

Very nice place to live as for as raising children, and being something other than a minority, but I wish I'd gone to see the other parts of the U.S. before deciding to stay here all my life, I sincerely believe that the ones of us who chose to live here forever, became complacent and a little narrow minded, we have little or
no experience with diversity! As for as jobs and the economy,
we are the worst I've ever seen. Nepotism runs rampant in our
county, it is who you know or who you are that gets you hired on really decent paying jobs! Minorities certainly aren't high on the list. Yes, Blount County might be a wonderful place for those of you who were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but if you weren't, here, you are a nobody!

Hello Steve,
I realy enjoy seeing the Music Makers of Rocky Branch ! I'm the banjo picker with the John Deere hat. You can see a little of me in one of your photos. There is also a pic of one of my pickin buddys who just passed away.
It's in album #2, pic # 23. He is the tall grey head with guitar standing next to a lady in red. I was wondering if there's any chance of getting a copy of that photo ? My printer will not copy from the website very well.
This would mean so much to me if I could get a copy as he was my best friend. I would be more than happy to pay the cost.

Please let me know if you can do this.

This is another test of the Guestbook Entry Monitor System. This is ONLY a test. This entry will be read, edited, and finally deleted remotely by qualified personnel. If this had been a REAL monitoring system, it would have required approval BEFORE it was seen by the public, and that is always an option. Of course, if this was a real test you would be instructed to a testing center near you for further instructions.
Cool beans! The chance to delete, edit, and respond without being a computer-guru makes it easy to imagine having a guestbook of your own.

Our family will be moving to Blount County in June.... We are very excited about our upcoming move. My husband nor I have jobs in the area at this point...we were both born in NC and have lived here all our lives and are ready to spread our wings so to speak. After alot of research we have found Blount County will be a great place to make our new home and raise our children. My husband has a college degree in social studies and is currently working to get his Tn teaching certification. He also has a law enforcement background. Any contacts anyone could help us with in reference to new employment would be truely appreciated. I have been a homemaker for the past 5 yrs but am also looking to get back into the work force. My experience is in customer service and preschool teaching. Again, we love the area already and can't wait to truely make it OUR home. Thanks for a great web sight!

though we only get to the mountains 3-4 times a year we feel
right at home when we're there. During the times when we
can't be there we'll visit the website and it's almost like
being there. Keep up the good work. Only thing wrong that
I can see is that the 2002 Schedule of Events needs to be
put on the site. We look for this all the time so that we
can schedule when we're "coming home". Thanks again!

I am a Blount and don't have a lot of Blount family around here and was just curious. Surely if we have the same name we have to be related some kind of way. This is very interesting. I am just looking to find out more about my family tree and where it is I came from (historically speaking).

Dear Steve, what a surprise to get your email that Morag Rae, a girl I met when I was working with the Baptist Mission in Zimbabwe back in 1985, was looking for me. I am trying to get hold of her now. Thanks for helping me, and for providing such a service for us here in Blount County. I teach government/economics at Alcoa High School, and I assign a local issue paper each term. Several students have used your web site for their research. It is helpful to have such information at hand.

I first saw the website after looking for a webdesigner. Mr. Speer was recommended to me from my accountant. After going through His site at the blount web, I knew he was the one to help me. Blount County is one of the most beautiful counties in Tennessee, but what I am most impressed with is the witnessing and the uplifting of Christ in this site. If only more Christians would be so bold. God bless you Steve and Thank you for sharing the greatest love story of all with us...

VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE WEB. Met Steve Spear in the lot at BI-Lo a short time ago. He suggested e-mail. Hope this is the way he meant.

I belong to the Sultana Association of Descendants and Friends. Ref. monument at MtOlive cemetary. We have started a movement through Senator Thompsons office to establish a memorial stamp about the sinking of that ship in 1865 killing nearly 1800 Union soldiers. Would there be a place on the site to publicize the endevor? Many of the those on the boat were members of the Third Tennessee Cavalry (a Blount County unit). Will be happy to furnish necessary details and source of some graphics.

Thanks and well done,
Virgil Davis

I wonder if the Blount County Historical Society has a website that you could use on the Blountweb as a link? I have read through the book that the Society has put out, and it has information about all of the Courthouses that were built and burned down here in Blount County.
See http://www.korrnet.org/bcghs/ for the Society page. Unfortunately, all they offer online is their book list, but that may be a help to some. Enjoy!

If you have anything other than photos that could be used, please e-mail us back by Wednesday. His name is Joshua Goodman and is in the 7th grade at Mary Blount. Thank you.
We wish we did! I can only hope that other viewers will write with information about links and library materials. We would love to make more information available online about this and other local sites, but we have to rely on the public, sometimes, to be our research staff.
The point of theBlountWeb is sharing, so that anyone's effort makes everyone's life better. Send us anything about Blount County, and we will find a way to share it with our whole community.

Who is suggesting that you should? Most residents like it here, but you might miss your maple trees... This is mostly oak-hickory forest down here. Of course we also have TONS of dogwoods, and that makes a spectacular springtime! Come visit, sometime... I think you would like it. Respectfully, Michael.

Thank you, Lisa, that is the sort of enthusiasm we need! The best promotion is to tell your friends what is online here; we try to look good to the search engines, and the businesses get a special separate effort. What we need most is people telling us what is happening in our community, and inviting others to come look.
Thanks again, Michael.

Today is the first time i have been on the blountweb since last year. my friends dad was showing it to me today. He was updatiing something on it, and he showed me the look rock cam. The look Rock cam is the best part of the Blount Web it is really neat the way we can see our beautiful home. So what i am trying to say is thanks for giving us the privilege to learn about and see the scenic sites in blount county.

I grew up in Maryville and visit the area and my family frequently because, well, you know. Southern roots grow deep! I love being able to log onto the web and see pictures of places that are near and dear to my heart. But what happened to the Millenium House? And the Maryville Schools web sites could use a little work. I'm curious to know who's still teaching! But those are just two tiny little issues. Overall, I think the Blountweb is great. Thanks!

We were born and raised in Blount County, but my husband's job took us to Virgina. We miss home very much and try to visit as often as we can, but it's never enough. Thank you for giving me a place to go when I need to be home and can't get there!

Thanks for allowing me to try your site. It is real nice.

I am sending this from the Blount County Schools computer lab, so please respond to my e-mail address at [email protected] Thanks!

I'm interested in tracing the family tree and came across the site on the web. Does anyone out there have connections with the Blount's of Sodington in Worcestershire, England?
Maybe some readers have more to offer, but we did trade links with a site in Texas www.blount.com, and they have geneological links. I found them by clicking on Search in the navigation bar above, and typing 'geneology'. Good luck!

Thanks for all your hard work on our Smoky Mountain Invitational Swim Meet site! It looks great! Larry Little called me tonight and told me you had all the SMI stuff up and running. He sounded very excited and very pleased. I can see why - you've done a great job. Thanks again. I'll be e-mailing the latest results to you each day at the end of the meet. Saturday should end around 4 PM so I should have results to you by 5 or 6 PM (I have to bring the results home to e-mail them to you). Sunday should end around 7 PM and since that is clean up night, my results to you will be even later - probably 9 or 10 PM.

Keep up the great work! Rebecca

I am a native Blount countian; who has seen much of the continental U.S.
I am sincerly moved and proud of this site. I still believe there are places where a community exists peacably and with admiration of the natural beauty the almighty God provides. This site expresses so well the essence of why this area is indeed special. Don't change a thing and keep up the great work. Thank you. I can't submit this without saying a word about Ben. Obviously an intelligent Christian young man, I felt the spirit move on me like I haven't felt in awhile when reading his testimony. Praise be to Jesus Christ our heavenly father.

Wow! I just visited theBlountWeb Presidential Campaigns site, and read through the three or four candidates' web sites I thought might interest me... and I found my candidate! This is a wonderful thing Steve has done for us, to collect all this information in one place! There is enough information here to make informed decisions, which is what our self-government relies on. I even volunteered for my candidate online! Thanks, Steve... this is yet another way to use the internet to bring us together, and to help us each do our best.

Sondra, I'm happy for you! And if you see a fellow in an orange shirt cycling his way to the fire-tower, that is my dad. His 70 years rest lightly on him. May we all be so blessed.

I Love the saying, under the Blount Web site seal, being a former YANKEE we appreciate this beautiful area and know that GOD DOES REIGNETH HERE. Keep up the good work.
I think that it's partly because so many of us in Blount County are relative newcomers that we need a medium like the BlountWeb to demonstrate our potential to each other, old and new alike. Appreciating God's blessings, we can give to strangers and discover friends. Anyone willing to share their strengths or announce their needs will likely find a good place among us, and room in theBlountWeb, too.

Ok, this to our neighbors: I returned Laura an email to make sure she knows that inside our 1700 pages we have an almost 100 page section for Schools in Blount County, another 95-some pages on recreation and parks, and better than 50 pages for local churches. I also pointed her to our Realty Directory. If you know of other good sources, please let her (and us) know about them. Thanks.

This site needs to be duplicated for many other cities in the nation.
It is a very comprehensive work in progress that seems to get better over time. It will be interesting to see the site January 2000. Thanks for keeping us informed,
Reggie

Well thanks, we hope YOU ALL will see us in January 2000 too! (see our Y2K advisory if you're in doubt.) Steve says if he'd had the money he'd have bought the names 'sevierweb' and 'loudonweb' and so forth. But on reflection, there's more than enough to be done here at home. And you know? Home is where the heart is. We also look forward to more labors of love.

GREAT JOB!! This is a beautiful site. Just wondered if there is a place for organizations to be listed. Our web site is www.leadblount.nxs.net Thanks for the opportunity to spread the good news!
We have prepared a page of non-profit organizations at www.blountweb.com/nonprofit where we hope to let folks know some of the good work being done in their community. We invite everyone to look it over, let us know what we've missed (which is lots, I'm sure), and participate as best they can in the groups that speak to their hearts.

Hey guys, how's it going! I'm praying that everyone supports this, because I know this will be a great thing for Blount County! Do you plan to have a chat room for the people of Blount County?
Well, we expect to open a Discussions forum in the next couple of weeks, and we invite our viewers to send us ideas for topics and even comments to help us start. We don't feel that it should be our role to provide unmonitored chat-space, but we have considered establishing a net address exchange. Write me, please, all of you, and give us some guidance here. Thanks.

Dear Webmasters, I read about your site in the paper this morning and was pleased to see Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church listed. However, the address has changed as we sold the previous church and are currently building a bigger new one at 860 Louisville Road, Alcoa, TN 37701. Also we have started a web of our own and would be pleased to have it listed on your site. The Web is at www.ourladyoffatima.org. Many thanks for your kind attention.
Oops! We compiled our list of churches (see www.blountweb.com/churches) from many sources, and no doubt there are still errors and omissions. I'm sure also that there are many congregations with web sites we don't know about. In addition, you may have noticed that we provide a free message board for any who can use it. Spread the word.

OK, so you haven't been loafing! The new Business Directory looks and works great, but if you're ready to 'tidy up' here's a few nitpicks: (Editor: an embarrassingly long list of errors has been deleted...). Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the help. Somehow you never see the mistakes until they're printed. Luckily, unlike a newspaper, we can fix ours. Sure, we're embarrassed, but we just clean up and move along...

The new pages look great! I love the colors! I went in to check the Schedules and Events, and I guess you were right! It does need updating! So I added our Newcomers of Blount County Meetings and Coffees at the First United Methodist Church of Maryville. It was easy! Thanks.
Thanks, Bonnie. We hope everyone will think to add to the new Schedules page... its easy, free, and fast. Who knows about music events? Sports? Plays? School outings? The more we use it, the better it is for everyone.
