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!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
