Walland Real Estate

Walland real estate listings are updated every 2 hours. Walland is an unincorporated community residing along US Highway 321, between Townsend and Maryville. The area’s population is small, but like Townsend the beauty is immense. Much of today’s Walland serves as a destination for bicyclist, outdoors people in cabins and campers alongside the Little River, kayakers, rafters, and some residential properties. There is little in the way of commercial properties.

Walton and England Leather Co. started a tannery in 1893 in the Miller’s Cove area. The Little River Railroad, already in place, and the vast number of trees, bark a vital part in the tanning of hides, made the area an ideal location. Soon after the opening of the tannery a small company town developed near the tannery. The town was named Walland, a combination of “Walton” and “England.” Fisher’s house still stands on Old Walland Highway, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

By 1909 the tannery had prospered enough to bring electricity, framed houses, and greater railroad access to the town of Walland. Chilhowee Inn was built in 1902, to house executives visiting the tannery. Schlosser Leather ceased operations in the area, after the tannery burned in 1931. By this period Walland was already benefiting from tourism to the Great Smokies. With the Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s formation in 1934 and construction of US-321, Walland was able to replace lost jobs from the tannery with income from tourism flowing through into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
