Seymour is an unincorporated community and a census-designated place (CDP) in Blount and Sevier counties in the U.S. state of Tennessee, United States. The CDP population was 8,850 at the 2000 U.S. census. It is included in the Knoxville, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area.

History

Seymour is sometimes referred to historically and cartographically [ [http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?city=Newell%20Station&state=TN&country=us MapQuest] ] as Newell's Station but is rarely known by this name within the community. The first court of Sevier County, State of Franklin, was held at Newell's Station on Boyds Creek in March 1785. [ [http://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/imagegallery.php?EntryID=S022 Tennessee Encyclopedia] ]

Upon completion on Dec. 18th, 1909, of the Knoxville, Sevierville & Eastern Railway, the community's station was named Seymour in honor of the line's chief engineer. [ [http://www.trainweb.org/smokymtnrr/route.html Smoky Mountain Railroad] ] The Trundles Cross Roads Post Office, named for one of the area's early settler families, changed its name soon after to reflect the community's new designation.
