Maury County History
Maury County was established in 1807, from a combination of land from Williamson County, and Indian lands. The rich soil attracted early settlers, who planted commodity crops like cotton, tobacco and hemp.
One notable plantation was the Polk family plantations at Ashwood, famous for their array of agricultural products. The Columbia ancestral home of the 11th US President, James K. Polk, remains a national historical site and museum.
For decades during the Antebellum years, the county was the richest in the state, based on its agricultural production. After the Civil War, farmers shifted from cotton to grain and livestock raising, and dairy production. Tobacco became the county’s largest cash crop. Progressive agricultural practices were developed through programs at the Middle Tennessee Agricultural Experimental Station in the 20th Century. Today, Maury County still leads the state in production of beef cattle, and remains a major producer of corn, wheat, grain, sorghum and cotton.
It was later discovered that the richness of the county soil was attributed to an underlying layer of phosphate rock, once the bottom of an ancient seabed. This launched a mining and chemical industry that supported the war efforts in the 1940s, and lasted until the mid 1980s.
In the years following World War II, these industries were sites of revolutionary labour unrest, as black veterans resisted being pushed back into second-class status. Area members became leaders in the growing campaign for civil rights during the 1950s and 1960s throughout the state.
Today, Maury County is an emerging tourist destination, bolstered by its numerous historic sites. The County welcomes more tourists annually than any other rural county in Tennessee.
