Maury County was established in 1807 and was named for Abram Maury, a State Senator from Williamson County. Columbia serves as the county seat. As a result of its rich soil with its underlying layer of phosphate, Maury County has had a long history of agriculture success. Even today, the county remains a major producer of corn, wheat, grain, sorghum and cotton. In Mt. Pleasant, the high grade brown phosphate rock launched a mining industry and made the town boom. The county is also home to the Saturn Corporation and tourist attractions such as the James K. Polk house, the Athenaeum and two Civil War sites known as Rippavilla and Oaklawn.
