Sequatchie County was established in 1857 and its county seat is Dunlap. One of the prominent natural resources that the county has had in its history is coal mining. Companies such as the Chattanooga Iron and Coal Corporation and the Southern States Company operated and employed many residents of the county during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Railroads have also been significant in the county’s history with the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway line that provided transportation and shipping services.
