This land was originally located in what was known as “The Forks” - the area between the forks of the Holston and Watauga Rivers. It was so called by its early settlers who designated the area as a meeting place for organized hunts necessary to help eliminate the wolves that constantly threatened their livestock. Andrew Shell, Arnold Shells son, who owned most of the surrounding property, applied for a post office at the “Piney Flats”. The request was granted, Andrew became the first postmaster and Piney Flats became the official name. (Submitted on June 21, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
