- Created Date
Map of Hickman County (Tenn.) surveyed in part and compiled by C. C. Anderson. As with others in this series of early 20th century Tennessee Division of Geology county maps, this map is extremely detailed and shows towns, roads, railroads, streams, residences, churches, schools, cemeteries, sawmills, mines and the Old Aetna Furnace. Every dwelling and house structure in the countryside is indicated by a square. Copy 2 has county road numbers marked by hand.
Hickman County was established in 1807 from the southern portion of Dickson County. It was named for settler Edwin Hickman who was killed in 1791, in a Native American raid, while leading a surveying team. Its original county seat was Vernon, but moved to Centerville in 1823. The Tennessee Geology maps from the 1920s are among the best for historical and demographic detail.
