History of Gallatin, Tennessee

Andrew Jackson became one of the first to purchase land in the town when it was surveyed in 1803. That same year, the first courthouse and jail were built.  Jackson also founded the very first general store.

During the Civil War the Union Army first captured Gallatin in February 1862. In July, General John Hunt Morgan recaptured Gallatin and held it until Confederate forces fell back to Chattanooga.

Gallatin was left with occupational forces after the war. Upon their departure, the area returned to being a small southern community with steady growth. The area was primarily agricultural until mid-century. By 1970, industrialization resulted in only half of the county population being considered rural.
