Area History

    Mosheim, originally called "Blue Springs" after a spring that flows through the town, was settled circa 1800. Many of its initial settlers were German Lutherans. In 1872, the Lutherans established a local college at Blue Springs known as Mosheim Institute, after the German theologian, Johann Lorenz von Mosheim (1693–1755). That same year, the name of the town was officially changed to "Mosheim", after the college.

    The Civil War Battle of Blue Springs was fought near Mosheim on October 10, 1863. The town of Mosheim held reenactments of this battle every year from 1991 until 2008. Several participants of the East Tennessee bridge-burning conspiracy, including noted potter Alex Haun, hailed from a community known as "Pottertown," which was located just outside of Mosheim.

    In 1998, the Town of Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department station 1100 split into two separate departments. With this major split happening the birth of the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department station 2700 was on the rise. The New Department has a total of five fire apparatuses which are used to serve and protect the greater area of the Mosheim community.
