Inscription. The eastern terminal of this 28-mile shortline stood southwest of this site. It was established in 1907 by Knoxville industrialist W.J. Oliver and constructed by his firm. The KS & E and its successor companies were dubbed "Knoxville, Slow & Easy." The line aided the economic growth of Sevier County and was essential to the construction of Douglas Dam during World War II. Later known as the Smoky Mountain Railroad, it ceased operations in 1961.
