Vonore was founded in 1852, when the railroad came through. The city was named for John Vonore, a Cherokee chief who lived nearby and signed the Treaty of Tellico Blockhouse in 1798. It is located on U.S. Route 411 (the historic Great Indian Warpath) and State Route 66 (the historic Three Notch'd Road). The first post office at Vonore opened in 1853; it closed temporarily from 1861 to 1865 during the American Civil War but reopened after that conflict ended . In 1890, a fire destroyed much of downtown Vonore; however, it recovered quickly with new businesses opening within months after this disaster struck .
