Bledsoe County is the oldest and most northern county in the Sequatchie Valley and was established in 1807. The county was named for Anthony Bledsoe, a Revolutionary war patriot who migrated to Tennessee from Virginia in the late 1700s. Its county seat, Pikeville, is located on the state route from Knoxville to Huntsville, Alabama. By being strategically located, the town developed as a trade and supply center for farmers. The county also is the home of Fall Creeks Falls State Park that offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities for the public.
