Like many other businesses in Sevier County, Gatlinburg Falls Resort experienced a setback during the 2016 wildfires. Fast forward two years and this cabin resort in Gatlinburg is completely restored and bustling with tourists.
Construction crews do not rest between jobs in Sevier County. The cleanup started right away after that awful night in November 2016. Many Gatlinburg TN hotels have received a face lift as a result of the wildfires. Things have a way of working out even after a tragedy.
We locals have found ways to rebuild our hearts and not just our buildings after such a traumatic experience. Gatlinburg 2.0 began just as soon as the city opened back up for business, ten days after the fire. Here’s to the power of resilience and grit.
