The Monterey Depot Museum is in a replica depot, buts more than trains-its about everything from prehistoric Indians to coal miners, lumbermen, soldiers and people of the mountain community. Monterey's official motto is "Where Hilltops Kiss the Sky." The town is actually higher in elevation than Pigeon orgs and Gatlinburg.
