Didn’t know why it was called Skyline Farms. Will check it out when I go there in Nov.

A few people lived here on the mountain at Skyline back then but Skyline Farms project did not start until 1934, 13000 acres was bought from the Pierce coal mines to start the Skyline Farms project! That is when they named it Skyline Farms, it was first named Cumberland mountain farms, but there was one of the projects in Tenn. already with that name. So they let the school children come up with name Skyline !
