Cannon County lies in the middle of the state, between the cities of Murfreesboro and McMinnville. The county was established in 1836, when the state legislature took portions of Rutherford, Smith and Warren counties to create the county that was named after Governor Newton Cannon. The county seat and the largest town is Woodbury. Cannon County is also a regional center for folk decorative arts and has established a market for making white oak baskets and wood furniture for sale along U.S. Highway 70S.
