This extremely detailed map of Trousdale County shows towns, roads, railroads, houses, civil district lines, and county lines and names churches, schools, and cemeteries. Geographic features such as rivers, creeks, streams, and shale outcrops are named. Hand-drawn historical locations, such as a Federal Civil War camp and the "Old Fort Blount road" were made on this map by Mrs. Rhea Garrett, a Daughters of the American Revolution member. An accompanying list of these spots is included.
Trousdale County was established in 1870 from parts of Macon, Smith, Sumner, and Wilson counties. It is named for Brigadier General and governor, William Trousdale. Its county seat and largest city is Hartsville. Trousdale County is Tennessee's smallest in land area. Division of Geology maps such as this one, made under State Geologist Walter F. Pond's direction, are among the best and most detailed early 20th century Tennessee county maps.
