In 1882 the Caton family settled on a 1000 acre farm. At the turn of the 1900's the family had developed a small town with a grist mill, a general store, a post office and Ed's Mill which was a machine shop.

During the depression the US Government purchased most of the Caton farm for the forming of The National Park and the family moved away and the town was abandoned. In the 1950's with the building of Interstate 40, the family returned to their home. The house was turned into a boarding house for the highway workers. When Ed died in 1968 May moved to live with her daughter and the property remained vacant for 18 years.

While vacationing in 1986 Ray and Pattie Blackman form Pascagoula, Mississippi discovered the property was for sale and fell in love with he waterfall and the history of the property. They decided to purchase and restore the dilapidated buildings into rental cabins for others to enjoy the majestic beauty thus creating what is now Serenity Falls.

The Blackman family decided to retire in 2016 and the Hansen-Marshall Family from Baltimore fell in love and Purchased the property in winter 2016. Ken, a contractor from Baltimore, and Sue, a retired policewoman from Baltimore, are carrying on the legacy of the town and plan to build cabins and host weddings on the remaining 80 acre tract.

Will's Barn has been converted to a two bedroom cabin with a private deck over the creek, Located in Serenity Falls, the largest privately owned waterfall in Tennessee.

                                      Great Property

                                      Heather W.

                                      The waterfall is beautiful and the owners are super nice and pet friendly! They even walked our dog for us when we went to Dollywood for the day!

                                      Great place to get away and relax!

                                      Trish K.

                                      Very relaxing location. Come with food to prepare and you won't have to leave. You can just enjoy the peace and the waterfall. We came for our daughter's wedding and it was a gorgeous wedding location! We received many compliments from the guests. We weren't able to just set back and relax due to the wedding but plan to come again when we have nothing to do but enjoy our time.
