Sewanee is located in Franklin County, TN. As described by one contemporary poet, Sewanee enjoys "remoteness without cultural dislocation." It is home to notable cultural institutions and events, among them the University of the South, Sewanee Writers Conference, Summer Music Festival and Saint Andrew's Sewanee Episcopal School.
Local shopping, restaurants and lodgings are plentiful and, just that… local. Those desiring national chains and broader selection can find them less than an hour away by car. For convenient access by private aircraft, Sewanee Municipal Airport is just minutes from Myers Point at Sewanee.
