What's in a Name: Great Smoky (Smokey, Smokie) Mountains National Park

How did the Great Smoky Mountains National Park get its name? The Smokies are named for the blue mist that always seems Dedication by President Franklin D. Rooseveltto hover around the peaks and valleys. The Cherokee called them shaconage, (shah-con-ah-jey) or "place of the blue smoke"..

As for the spelling, just as many folks call them "smokey" as do those who call them "smoky". The dictionary says both are acceptable. Whether you say Smokies, Smokeys, or Smokys doesn't really matter. They all conjure up the same vision that millions of visitors each year take with them after visiting the Park. As for the "Great" in Great Smokey Mountains, you will have to visit the Smokies to fully understand that part of the name.
