The Mooresburg Community Center is  a place where we foster meaningful relationships and not only address hunger but also address the feelings of loneliness that occur in rural areas with little or no commerce, no industry.

Mooresburg is an unincorporated community. There are no municipal services.  It is an historic neighborhood that is just far enough on the fringe of development that no services reach out far enough to address the lack of food aid.

For everyone who lives here and for those who choose to visit, you will find a serene, pastoral valley at the foot of the Clinch and Holston mountains. Mooresburg is 125 square miles of rich farmland and peaceful woodlands, and is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.

We are situated on Cherokee lake, about 50 miles east of Knoxville, TN. Cherokee Lake is formed by the Holston River and it’s tributaries. Cherokee Lake has 30,300 acres of water surface and 463 miles of shoreline, and is one of the largest lakes in Tennessee. Cherokee Lake has several boat docks, campgrounds, and parks to visit. Quarryville Boat Ramp is the public access site to Cherokee Lake located in Mooresburg, Tennessee.
