Gate City is the seat of Scott County’s government and serves as the principal gateway into Virginia from east Tennessee and the city of Kingsport. The town is named after a gap in the Clinch Mountain, a “gate” through which both pioneers and Native Americans passed, which is now commemorated with the Daniel Boone Wilderness Driving Trail.
With a population of 2,159, Gate City offers a quiet location with several vintage and antique stores, department stores, hardware stores, supermarkets, restaurants, a park with little league baseball facilities, an elementary, middle and high school, a library, and much more.
