Port Royal State Historic ParkPort Royal was one of the earliest towns in Tennessee. It began as a settlers fort around 1785 and was founded as a town in 1797, one year after Tennessee became a state. The town became a center of regional commerce and remained an important town until the American Civil War. After the War, people left small towns like Port Royal for jobs in larger cities. As steamboats replaced flatboats and the railroad was brought to surrounding communities, the town of Port Royal was lost to time.
