Copperhill is a city in Polk County, Tennessee, United States. The population was 511 at the 2000 census. It is included in the Cleveland, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area.



Copperhill is located at 34°59′32″N 84°22′27″W / 34.99222°N 84.37417°W / 34.99222; -84.37417 (34.992108, -84.374254)[3], situated in extreme southeast Tennessee, bordering northwest Georgia.

Its twin city is McCaysville, Georgia, with the two situated as a single town aligned along the northwestward-flowing river rather than the east/west state line, which cuts diagonally across streets (where it is marked with a blue line) and through buildings. The main street through town is Ocoee Street (Tennessee 68), which becomes Toccoa Street (Georgia 60) to the east-southeast in McCaysville. A truss bridge over the river at the state line links them to Blue Ridge Drive (Georgia 5) to the south-southwest.

Copperhill is the birthplace to the Ocoee River, and where the river changes names from the Toccoa River in Georgia to become the Ocoee in Tennessee. In 1990, a major flood stuck the towns in the dark morning hours of February 16th. Even after the flood recovery, the town still has a unique downtown business corridor that retains a flavor of yesteryear.

As a result of the state line, homes and businesses on the Copperhill side of town have area code 423, while those on the McCaysville side have area code 706.
