Rockwood is situated in beautiful Roane County, between
the cities of Crossville and Knoxville. The town is
easily accessible from Interstate 40, and Highways 27
and 70. The City of Rockwood was actually established
after the Civil War when Union officer and geologist
John T. Wilder discovered iron on Walden Ridge. He
returned with northern industrialists to begin mining
and milling operations in 1868. Rockwood began as a
company town serving the employees of the Roane Iron
Company. The town gets its name from the company's first
president, William O. Rockwood. As the company and the
town prospered, other businesses moved into the area,
thus expanding and diversifying Roane County's economic
framework. Although things have changed drastically
since the early days of mining, officials are proud of
the many things the small town has to offer to its
citizens and those visiting the area.
