Sevierville, TN—With the beautiful Smoky Mountains, Little Pigeon River and clear mountain streams, it’s no wonder early pioneers decided to settle in Sevierville back in 1795. Sevierville is a community with a proud heritage and history, and now they’re proud to be home to America’s most popular outdoor store – Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World.

The 130,000 square foot outdoor super store features two levels and is part local history museum, part art gallery, part education, conservation and entertainment center, and part retail store. It is located just off Interstates 40 and U.S. Highway 66 at the N.W. edge of the Great Smoky Mountains. Massive log and rock work frame the Grand Entrance where inside, log and chink, and barnwood walls and vaulted post and beam construction ceiling make up the front lobby. A fire crackles in the nearby stone and stucco fireplace authenticating the lodge-like feel.rustic furniture, various wildlife displays, local artifacts, and old photos.

As you move on, you are greeted by giant, exquisitely crafted outdoor themed chandeliers, made by Bass Pro Shops own artisans hanging throughout the store.

Dinosaur fossils and wildlife tracks are imprinted in the concrete floor. One of the store’s focal points is a 30′ Smoky Mountain rock bluff that showcases a dramatic 15′ waterfall flowing into the 18,000 gallon aquarium stocked with over 200 fish native to the area. The water continues to flow as it drops over a pedestrian bridge that spans a 7,000 gallon trout stream where brook, brown, and rainbow trout may be seen idling in the water.

Tribute is paid to the many diverse aspects that comprise the Great Smoky Mountain region, such as the Appalachian Trail, in the murals painted throughout the new Bass Pro Shops Sevierville store by Laughingwell Studio artist Linda Spencer. Indeed, the whole store is a tribute to the area and its people and, like other Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World stores, takes on the flavor and atmosphere of the region in which it is located. Using area artifacts, antiques and memorabilia, the store becomes a living museum of the hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor legacies of Tennessee.
