Here Are The Oldest Towns In Tennessee… And They’re Loaded With History

Tennessee is a proud lil’ state, and for good reason. We have a lot of spunk, a ton of class and LOTS of character. We’re a southern state that gives you a good time, and our past is rooted in good American history – that’s why we’ve found some spots that have been there since the get-go.

We’ve found the 10 oldest incorporated towns in Tennessee. It’s necessary to pull from this date, as conflicting historical data and solid word-of-mouth can skew hard city data. So, we did it – we came down hard and found the oldest cities in the state, according to state data. Curious if your town made it? Take a look!

Where’s your favorite town? Do you feel we missed your proud hometown? We want to hear from you! Let us know below.
