Claiborne County was formed in 1801 from parts of Grainger and Hawkins counties and named in honor of William C. C. Claiborne, Tennessee’s first congressional representative. During the same year the county was established, the town of Tazewell became the county seat. Claiborne County is home to Lincoln Memorial University, named after Abraham Lincoln and also has the Cumberland Gap, a natural historic feature that served as a gateway for Daniel Boone and many other settlers to travel westward.
