Welcome to Town of Gate City
Where Mountains & Music Make Memories
The Town of Gate City lies in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, an area rich in both Pioneer and Native American history. With a population of 2,034, Gate City is the seat of Scott County’s government, and was founded and still is the principal gateway from Tennessee through Virginia to Kentucky. We are located only 10 minutes from Kingsport, Tennessee and 20 from Johnson City, Tennessee.
The Town offers residents a quiet location with several vintage and antique stores, as well as department stores, hardware stores, supermarkets, several restaurants, a park with little league baseball facilities, an elementary, middle and high school and much more, all with quick access to a major metropolitan area in neighboring Kingsport.
We welcome you to be a part of all the exciting events and cultural experiences available in Gate City. Explore a town of friendly people and great atmosphere just beyond the highways, where city lights give way to majestic vistas and inviting venues. Check out our Local Business Directory.
