Bradley County is located in southeast Tennessee and shares its southern boundary with the state of Georgia. The county was founded in 1836 and was named in honor of Colonel Edward Bradley, a Revolutionary War veteran who served with Andrew Jackson during the War of 1812. The city of Cleveland is the county seat. One of the top tourist attractions in the county is the Red Clay State Historical Area, an interpretive center for the Cherokee removal known as the Trail of Tears.
