3. It Wasn’t Always Called Dollywood

Even though it’s widely known as Dollywood today, this wasn’t the park’s first name. It originally opened back in 1961 under the name Rebel Railroad. Then, in 1970, it was renamed Goldrush Junction when it was purchased by former Cleveland Browns’ owner, Art Modell. When Parton came on board with the park in 1986, that’s when it was officially named Dollywood in honor of her.
