The Tennessee General Assembly created Williamson County on October 26, 1799, from a portion of Davidson County. European-American settlers migrated into the area by 1798, preceded by traders. Most were from Virginia and North Carolina, part of a western movement after the Revolutionary War. In 1800, Abram Maury laid out Franklin, the county seat, which was carved out of part of a land grant he had purchased from Major Anthony Sharp.The county was named in honor of Dr. Hugh Williamson of North Carolina, a colonel in the North Carolina militia and served three terms in the Continental Congress.

Many of the early inhabitants of the county were veterans who had been paid in land grants after the Revolutionary War. Those veterans who chose not to settle in the area often sold large sections of their land grants to speculators, who in turn subdivided the land and sold off smaller lots. Prior to the Civil War, the county was the second-wealthiest in the state, and part of the Middle Tennessee region. This area's resources of timber and rich soil (farmed for a diversity of crops including rye, corn, oats, tobacco, hemp, potatoes, wheat, peas, barley, and hay) provided a stable economy, as opposed to reliance on one cash crop.

Located just south of Nashville in beautiful Middle Tennessee, Williamson County is home to more than 205,000 residents who enjoy a high quality of life. Considered one of the most desirable suburban locations in the state, Williamson County is known for its high-performing schools, pristine recreational facilities, strong business climate, and wide range of restaurants and retail choices. You’ll find a mix of home options, from luxury apartments and condos to planned subdivisions, historic houses and farm properties. While Williamson County has seen tremendous growth, community leaders have taken steps to preserve its rural character and vibrant history. You’ll love living, working and playing in Williamson County.
