Dayton is the County seat and, without a doubt, its biggest claim to fame is the trial of John T. Scopes. This prominent case is sometimes called "The Scopes Monkey Trial" in reference to the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), established in 1933, changed the face of Rhea County. The damming of the Tennessee River resulted in the formation of Watts Bar and Chickamauga Lakes. The reservoirs attract millions of outdoor enthusiasts each year for fishing, boating and swimming.

The Trail of Tears National Historic Trail memorializes the removal of the Cherokee and marks the paths that 17 Cherokee detachments followed westward. Approximately 16,000 men, women and children made this arduous journey under adverse conditions. No one knows for sure, but it is estimated that up to one-forth of the Cherokee Nation perished on this journey and in internment camps. Today the trail includes about 2,200 miles of land and water routes and traverses portions of nine states. The northern route of the Trail of Tears passes through Dayton and is marked with road signs throughout town. The trail enters town along Hwy 60 W and leaves Dayton along Hwy 30 headed west.
