Gallatin is located about 20 miles northeast of Nashville and is one of those rare towns that is small and large enough to be in the middle of the Tennessee River Valley, but not too far from Nashville. The city, named after its proximity to the river, was founded in 1801 and was elevated to a city in 1802 by the county town of Sumner County. Named for its location on the western edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, it was founded in 1776 as a settlement and transformed in 1802 from the county - home to Sumners County - into a business town with about 1,000 residents. It was founded by a group of local farmers and peasant councils who lived here at about the same time as the town.
The Sumner County Museum in Gallatin is located in the old Sumners County Courthouse on the corner of East Main Street and Main Avenue. One of the exhibits includes a collection of artefacts from the area, which was acquired in the first years of its existence as a county town. Hendersonville overtook Gallatin as a county seat in 1802, with the former remaining as its seat until the end of World War II, and has since overtaken it in its current status as an urban city. In 1804, Henderson County was reunited with Sumner County, and Henderson overtook Gallinatown as its seat, while the latter remained the county town.
This map was drawn in 1864 and shows the churches, cotton fields and taverns that were in the area at the time.
Andrew Jackson was one of the first to buy a piece of land when the city was surveyed and plated in 1803. This 500-acre plantation, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, houses a number of historic sites, including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville. Andrew Jackson became one of them, he bought a plot of land when it was surveyed and flattened in 1794, and again in 1697.
Anyone who has ever seen Kenneth Michael or Mookie Moore play college football knows the Galatasaray sideburns. What I love even more is that true grit and amazing grace are remarkably simple and simply remarkable. I have come to hide in a part of heaven that I consider my own, in a city filled with so many great people that it is like being born into it. Two local high school teams play football, mostly against each other, and two of the best high schools in Tennessee.
You will also find outdoor recreation that revolves around the waters of the Cumberland River. There is so much to discover for new home buyers, including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Mountains.
