If you go to the main City-Data page, you can key in Lancing and it will give you the basic data on Lancing (and maybe some photos if there are any of Lancing; probably not though, it's a pretty small place).

The Knoxville MLS covers the Lancing area. You don't have to be working with a realtor to use it. Just click on the following link.

Find Homes By Area

Then click on Morgan County. At the next screen, select the Lancing sub area.

Wartburg is the county seat of Morgan County.

Lancing is thought to have started out named Triplett Gap but it was then later known as Kismet until the late 1800's when the railroad began to go through town. By the early 1900's due to the railroad referring to the village as Lancing, the name then stuck. It is a town that was built on a roughly 100 acre parcel that saw it's peak back in probably the middle to late 1960's when coal and timber were flowing out of this area like water.

Like many towns in this region that were built from the timber and coal industries, the times passed them by. With advances in logging and the need for higher quality coal that contained less sulfur, this region of Tennessee and the many small towns that based their economies on these products started to slowly fade away. However, with so many people today that desire a return to a more rural lifestyle, these areas are seeing a resurgence and some life is being brought back in. In the case of Lancing, I doubt it will ever be more than a little burg of Wartburg.
