Oswald Dome (elevation 3,022 ft, 921 m), also known as Bean Mountain, is a mountain located in the Cherokee National Forest in Polk County, Tennessee. It is part of a larger ridge called Chilhowee Mountain, and is the highest point on that ridge.

Description

Oswald Dome is located at approximately 3.2 miles west of Reliance, 5.5 miles northeast of Benton, and 2.9 miles south-southeast of Delano. The Hiwassee River flows along the north base. The mountain is accessible by Oswald Dome Road, a forest service road which connects to U.S. 64, and two trails. The Lowry Cove Trail begins on top of the mountain and heads north. Several radio/television transmitters are located atop the mountain. A fire tower was moved from the mountain to the Ocoee Whitewater Center in 2004.
