About Sumner County
Sumner County, Tennessee is rich in history, beauty and musical heritage. The county was created in 1786 and is named for General Jethro Sumner, a Brigadier General in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Sumner County was an important part of westward expansion and the development of Tennessee. Pioneers settled here because the land was rich in game, fresh water, and rolling hills.
