Trousdale County was established in 1870 and was named after Governor William Trousdale. The county seat is Hartsville, one of the Middle Cumberland region’s oldest communities. During the early years of the county, horseracing and a quarry that produced high-quality grist stones for Middle Tennessee’s water powered mills were two notable developments. Like many parts of the state, agriculture has dominated the county’s economy. While cotton was the primary crop before the Civil War, the loose leaf tobacco market has become the predominant agricultural product for the county in the twentieth century.
