History of Dickson County

Founded in 1803, Dickson County was named for William Dickson, a Nashville physician and legislator who reportedly was a close friend of Pres. Andrew Jackson. Dickson County's rich history includes some of the biggest early industry in Middle Tennessee in the iron furnaces of Cumberland Furnace, the site of the founding of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, one of the first communities of freed slaves in Promise Land and the birthplace of Gov. Frank G. Clement, now a state-owned museum tracking the history of the railroad and the legacy of the late governor.
