Lane Curlee is the longest-serving mayor in Tullahoma’s history, having served 18 total years of mayor from 1993 to 2020. He played a role in numerous municipal developments including the city’s Grider Stadium, historic preservation works, the enhancement of the South Jackson Civic Center, construction of the Johnson Lane Sports, new parks, and launching several significant local programs.
