In 1951, Tennessee Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In Its History

While it’s been a few years since Tennessee has been hit with hard and heavy snow, many folks in the Volunteer state can probably remember the last good snow. But there are few native Tennesseans that still remember the greatest winter storm in the state’s history: The Great Blizzard of 1951. With over 8 inches of snow and thick, heavy ice, the storm completely shut down Middle Tennessee for nearly a week. These pictures give you an idea of just how devastating this storm was.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Do you love Tennessee cooking? If so, you need to try out Marvin’s Family Restaurant, a small town all-you-can-eat buffet that’s well worth a visit.
