Welcome to the Rhea County, Tennessee information site.
This website will
give you a wealth of information on one of the most historical
and progressive counties in Tennessee. With the Tennessee River
bordering our eastern side and mountain ranges on the west,
Rhea County is one of the most beautiful places you'll find
anywhere. Rhea County is home to the famous Scopes trial (or
monkey trial) where William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow
debated the theory of evolution. With 45 industries, including
the site of a nuclear reactor built by TVA, Rhea County offers
unlimited business opportunity as well.
