Overview
More
The Monterey Depot Museum is in a replica depot, buts more than trains-its about everything from prehistoric Indians to coal miners, lumbermen, soldiers and people of the mountain community. Monterey's official motto is "Where Hilltops Kiss the Sky." The town is actually higher in elevation than Pigeon orgs and Gatlinburg.

Fun place for a visit - very informative and the curator takes the time to tell stories and knows a lot about the history. I would definitely recommend a trip if you have a few hours to spare.
