Grundy County in Tennessee, located between Chattanooga and Nashville, with the southernmost portion intersected by Interstate 24, is easily accessible to traffic which flows from Canada and the mid-west to the southeast and on to Florida. Served in addition by U.S. Highways 41 and 64, State Highways 56, 108, and 150.

Grundy County occupies an enviable position on the southern terminus of the Cumberland Plateau. A Tennessee River port is located 20 miles away at South Pittsburg. Ten miles from Grundy County, Sewanee offers a 2,800 ft. asphalt runway airport. The nearest commercial air service is at Chattanooga, 53 miles to the southwest.

 

The county, established  in 1844, was named for Felix Grundy, a highly respected  and successful Tennessee lawyer, who was elected to the U.S. Congress and later to the Senate.

 

Coal was instrumental in the early development of Grundy County. Coal was first discovered in 1845.

Coal remains an economic factor in Grundy County, with much of the production making its way to T.V.A. steam generating facilities.

 

Grundy County is the home to the largest state forest in Tennessee, many beautiful vistas and trails as well as a rich cultural history that most Tennesseans don't know exists.  

The South Cumberland Recreation Area, on highway 56, offers detailed information about the magnificent natural area that is makes up Grundy County.

 

The Shawnees, Cherokees, and Creeks were some of the tribes which contributed to the history of Grundy County.
