Jefferson City is a small town in East Tennessee in the Morristown Metropolitan Area with a population of around 8,200. Almost a quarter of the population is between the ages of 18 and 24, which isn't surprising since Jefferson City is home to Carson Newman University.
The city was originally named "Mossy Creek" after a small moss covered creek that runs through town, but it was changed in 1901 to honor Thomas Jefferson. The name might have been changed, but you will hear many locals still calling it Mossy Creek.
Jefferson City has a strong religious history, being the site of a small Christian school called "Mossy Creek Baptist Seminary" that started in 1851. Almost 30 years later, the school was renamed to Carson College and for several years was complementary to Newman College, the female institution just across the street. In 1889, the two colleges joined making Carson Newman College one of the first coeducational institutions in the South. It is now called Carson Newman University and is one of the finest Christian Liberal Arts schools in the country.
