SummerFest On Monteagle Mountain

Thursday, June 19, 2014

The Town of Monteagle and the Monteagle Mountain Chamber of Commerce have partnered to create a summer-long special event called SummerFest on Monteagle Mountain that will highlight communities and local businesses who specialize in offering visitors "something different."   

Known as a summer vacation destination for generations of southerners and northerners alike (including numerous historical figures like Al Capone who built a hideaway that now houses a fine-dining restaurant), Monteagle Mountain offers visitors a laid-back, small town charm.  Monteagle Mountain also offers an eclectic array of things to see and do, especially when it comes to natural beauty.
