In Northeastern Tennessee, along the Kentucky and Virginia borders, sit four counties that make up Point Broadband’s Rural Tennessee service area. Claiborne, Hancock, Sullivan, and Washington Counties are nestled at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. With history, culture, festivals, and outdoor adventures awaiting, there is something for everyone in this corner of the Volunteer State.
Established in 1801, Claiborne County was named for a Virginia tidewater aristocrat, William C.C. Claiborne. Claiborne was one of the first judges on the Tennessee Superior Court and one of Tennessee’s first representatives in Congress.
Set in Central Appalachia, Hancock County, Tennessee was established in 1844. Named after Revolutionary War hero, John Hancock, it is home to Elrod Falls and the Kyles Ford Hiking Trail.
