History

Greene County is rooted in the "Nolichucky settlement," which was established by pioneer Jacob Brown on land leased from the Cherokee in the early 1770s. The Nolichucky settlement aligned itself with the Watauga settlement in modern Elizabethon. Greene County was formed in 1783, when the area was still part of North Carolina. Frontiersman Davy Crockett was born in Greene County in 1786.

Greene County is home to Tennessee's oldest college (Tusculum College), Tennessee's oldest Methodist congregation (the Ebenezer Methodist Church, near Chuckey), and Tennessee's second oldest continuously cultivated farm (Elmwood Farm, part of the Earnest Farms Historic District).
