City of Dunlap

Breathless, that’s what you’ll feel the first time you see the panoramic Sequatchie Valley. This natural beauty has been the home of the Cherokee, the pioneer and the coal miner.

Sequatchie County and the City of Dunlap provide a wealth of opportunities for visitors and residents. Explore the historic coke ovens and learn about coal mining in the region, or get a birds-eye view riding the air currents in a hang glider. Downtown Dunlap features antique and gift shops, as well as first-class dining. Residents enjoy good schools, low utilities, quality healthcare, and recreational activities. 

The industrial and business parks have access to highways and rail, plus a local government and Chamber of Commerce willing and able to facilitate any special requirements. We invite you to become a part of our unique community!
