This is the former site of the Little River Lumber Company mill complex. Founded in 1901 by Col. W.B. Townsend for whom this community is named, the company was one of the largest commercial lumber operations in the Smokies. From 1901 to 1939, the company's Little River Railroad Company built over 150 miles of railroads in the Smoky Mountains and the company sawed over 560 million board feet of timber. Its lands are now part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
