Show Summary

Nineteen year-old Christy Huddleston decides to leave a sheltered life of luxury in 1912 Asheville to serve as a teacher in a remote mission schoolhouse in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Young and naïve but optimistic, she finds herself in the midst of overwhelming poverty, ignorance and superstition, yet also surrounded by great beauty, faith and love. Even as Christy wrestles against seemingly impossible odds to make a difference in her schoolchildren's lives, she is emotionally torn between the attentions of two very different men: Reverend David Grantland, a young, outspoken and idealistic minister from Boston, and Dr. Neil MacNeill, a man with a painful past, born and raised in Cutter Gap, now a physician working hard to establish the benefits of 20th century medicine in a place where folklore and herbalism prevail.
The series was based upon the novel written by Catherine Marshall in 1967.
The series was filmed on location in Townsend, Tennessee, USA.

  • I want more and more of it everytime I watch and episode!

    Christy is such and amazing show. I can't believe that I watched the entire season of it within a week with my sister. I just hope that I will be able to find the continuing episodes on DVD soon. I love the ambition that Christy displays throughout the movie, and the role is played so well. There is a message in each and every one of the episodes that makes you want to be a better person, and the romances keep up the interest level. I just hope that people will watch the show and appreciate the message behind all of the episodes as much as I did.moreless
  • Being an actor on the show, I know I'm biased...but it trully is one of the best family and faith-oriented shows ever to appear on television.

    I would like to set the record straight, however, that the show took place in the Appalachian mountains of East Tennessee, not the Blue Ridge Mts. of West Virginia or in Kentucky. Specifically, she left her home in Ashevile, NC to teach at a mission in the fictional Cutter Gap, TN.

    However, the story of Christy, written by Catherine Marshall, was based on the true story of her mother who taught school in the real-life community of Del Rio, TN.

    The show was filmed in Townsend, TN, about 30 miles from Gatlinburg.moreless
