Mountain City as described in 1939 
Mountain City, seat of Johnson County, is a trading center for farmers. Mountain people ride or walk into this town from their distant cabins to buy supplies with "cash money," or to swap eggs, chickens, butter and cream for tobacco, sugar, coffee, salmon, bananas and other "store-boughten" delicacies.
In 1885 the town, first called Taylorsville for an early settler, was given a more picturesque name; it is in a high valley surrounded by mountain peaks. The coldest weather ever registered in Tennessee was recorded here December 30, 1917 when the thermometer dropped to minus 30°.
