The sale of longtime Sevierville Mayor Bryan Atchley's estate will be held May 17 and 18 and feature memorabilia from his favorite sports teams.

Atchley, who died in Dec. 9, was mayor of Sevierville for 23 years, during which time he oversaw public improvements such as a new city hall, police station and a convention center as well as sports-related projects such as Smokies Stadium and two public golf courses.
