Piney Flats is an unincorporated community in Sullivan County in the U.S. state of Tennessee. It is part of the Kingsport - Bristol (TN) - Bristol (VA) Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is a component of the Johnson City - Kingsport - Bristol, TN-VA Combined Statistical Area - commonly known as the "Tri-Cities" region. Some areas of Piney Flats along U.S. Route 11E have been annexed by Johnson City (south of the Allison Road and Piney Flats Road intersection) and Bluff City north of the intersection and areas along Allison Road & Piney Flats Road. Former Sullivan East legend and Current King University superstar Jon King lives in Piney on the one road they have.How Piney Flats got its name - Oliver Taylor in his book “Historic Sullivan” describes the different types of hunters who roamed the area. There were the “transient hunters” who hunted in groups, the “still hunters” who hunted alone, the “round-up hunters”, and “fire hunters”. “The hunts were especially directed against wolves. Sometimes more than one hundred men would engage in the round-up. They would encircle a large boundary of land and drive the animals toward the center, gradually closing in upon them and giving but little chance of escape. In this way Piney Flats got its name. For a long time that section was infested with packs of vicious and destructive wolves – which were made more bold by the veneration of the Indians for them – and the neighborhood hunters, agreeing upon a “meet,” would name “the flats.”Explore the family-friendly attractions of Piney Flats and add them to your vacation plans using our United States day trip planning app.
