Briceville is an unincorporated community in Anderson County, Tennessee. The community is named for railroad tycoon and one-term Democratic U.S. Senator Calvin S. Brice of Ohio, who was instrumental in bringing railroad service to the town.
Briceville’s economy was historically based on coal mining. Briceville played an important role in three major late-19th and early-20th century incidents related to the region’s coal mining activities: the Coal Creek War in 1891, the Fraterville Mine disaster of 1902, and the Cross Mountain Mine disaster of 1911.
