Bull’s Gap – A Junction in the Mountains

Main Street Bulls Gap City hall building old historic buildings

Bull’s Gap, like Jonesborough, was part of the would-be State of Franklin and the downtown is on the National Registry of Historic Places. Where Jonesborough’s economic growth grew beyond being a railroad town where it attracted people of varying education levels and occupations, Bull’s Gap seems to have continued to rely on the railroad. The decline of the railroad put a strain on the town that was dependent on it for jobs and bringing visitors into town.
