Kingston, one of the oldest cities in the state, is the county seat, and was established as a result of the growing population around Fort Southwest Point. Roane County, named after the second governor of Tennessee - Archibald Roane, was formed in 1801. One of the greatest attractions is the scenic Watts Bar Lake offering visitors and residents excellent water recreation such as boating, swimming, camping, and world-class fishing. Fishermen enjoy the solitude of this lake with the abundance of natural life but everyone can enjoy the waterfront location of Kingston, complete with a paved walking trail that winds for more than three miles from Fort Southwest Point along the lake to Kingston City Park. The lake consists of 39,000 acres with 770 miles of shoreline right in the center of Roane County.
