Greene County was established in 1783 and named in honor of General Nathanael Greene of Rhode Island, under whom many fought during the Revolutionary War. Greene County’s most famous citizen was Andrew Johnson who served as an alderman and mayor and eventually became the seventeenth President of the United States after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. In addition to being associate with Andrew Johnson, Greene County is also home to Tusculum College and is the birthplace of famous frontiersman, Davy Crockett. The county’s agriculture is historically known for burley tobacco production and this crop led to the development of Greenville as the region’s most important tobacco market.
