HISTORY OF DICKSON COUNTY

The Charlotte Courthouse sometime between 1916 and 1920 before the building was expanded. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE RAGAN FAMILY

Editor’s note: The following is an brief overview of the history of Dickson County, gathered together by Alan Ragan using research, the Ragan Family’s Skits and Bits column – written by his grandfather Henry Ragan and now by Alan – and the family histories of longtime county residents.

seat is named for Robertson’s wife, Charlotte. The Town of Charlotte was the center of commerce, industry and government until the advent of the Civil War.

Dickson County was born

Railroad, major roads change county

The Tennessee General Assembly passed a bill creating Dickson County from portions of Montgomery and Robertson counties on Oct. 25, 1803. The county, the 25th of Tennessee’s 95 counties, was named for William Dickson, a Nashville physician and statesman who served in Congress at the time. Although Dickson never lived in the county named for him, his relatives played roles in its early development.

Nature spurs development The fertile soils and natural resources drew settlers to this area in the

12

early 1790s. North Carolina, Revolutionary War and Tennessee land grants assured large tracts of land at little or no cost to these pioneers. The discovery of iron ore provided the foundation for the area’s first industrial development. In 1793, James Robertson, the “Father of Middle Tennessee,” purchased land on Barton’s Creek. It was on this tract of land that Robertson built the first iron works on Tennessee’s frontier. In 1804, Robertson sold his furnace to Montgomery Bell industrialists. On Aug. 4, 1804, an act of the Tennessee General Assembly created the Town of Charlotte to serve as “The Seat of Dickson County Government.” The county

With the completion of the railroad from Nashville to the Tennessee River in the 1860s, the focus shifted to the southern end of the county. Also, the construction of the “Broadway of America,” or U.S. Highway 70, and the construction of Interstate 40 – which both also pass through southern Dickson County – have also shaped the county.

HISTORY OF DICKSON COUNTY »HISTORY FROM 12X finished and the first train passed through Dickson County. The completion of the railroad through the southern part of the county brought about the development and growth of towns like White Bluff, Burns and Dickson. Nov. 4, 1952 — Frank G. Clement of Dickson was elected governor for the first time. He served as governor from 1953-1959 and again from 1963-1967. Sept. 24, 1966 — Gov. Frank G. Clement cut the ribbon at the Tennessee River Bridge on the opening of the new Interstate 40, linking East and West Tennessee. The superhighway was started on Sept.18, 1958 and took eight years to build. May 9, 1959 — The first Old Timers Day as we now know it was held in Dickson on a vacant lot on Church Street across from Ragan & Hamilton, General Contractors. The day was organized by several people, including Warren G. Medley, Vernon “Red” Hamilton, Henry V. Ragan. June 2, 1965 — Hampton High School’s final graduation exercises were held. This event brought an end to segregation in the county’s schools. Dec. 9, 1968 — An announcement was made by Dickson County School officials that 80 acres of land had been purchased to build the new Dickson County Senior High School, bringing about the consolidation of Dickson, White Bluff and Charlotte high schools in 1972. Dec. 19, 2003 — The Water Authority of Dickson County opened the state’s most technologically advanced water treatment plant. It opened on the Cumberland River in northern Dickson County. The $29 million plant had the capacity to treat more than 20 million gallons of water per day. SOURCE: Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

The museum sits on the site of four previously managed railroad hotels. In 1912-13, J. T. Halbrook, a successful Dickson businessman, purchased the site and had a twostorey brick hotel constructed. It was a welcome stopping place for weary rail

passengers as well as the growing ranks of travelling salesmen known as “drummers.” In 1917 the Hotel Halbrook was managed by Belle Goad and her daughter, Maybelle. During their management, the hotel was known for good food, excellent service and hospitality, and clean rooms. While helping manage the hotel, Maybelle met and married Robert Clement in 1919. Their firstborn, Frank, was born in Room #5 in June 1920. After many years of planning, the newly renovated Hotel Halbrook opened in June 2009 as the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum. The Hotel Halbrook is a Tennessee state-owned historic site and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

DICKSON COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

F

or over 90 years, the Dickson County Chamber of Commerce has been working to develop economic opportunities, support community initiatives and promote Dickson County as a great place to live, work and visit. One of the Chamber’s key objectives is to attract new industries to the County. Working together with the Dickson County Industrial Development Board, the local utility companies, local and state governments and volunteers, the Chamber actively markets available properties and engages with prospective employers on a state, regional and national basis. Dickson County’s close proximity to Nashville, the 840 loop and Interstate 40—together with the natural beauty, great schools and quality of life—make it an ideal location for new industry, according to Chamber President and CEO David Hamilton. But that’s not their only focus. “As a staff, we are often the county’s ‘front door,’ serving as an information center for residents and visitors,” Hamilton said. “The Chamber handles an average of 450 calls each month from people seeking information on businesses, services or local events, and we mail out packages every week to people and companies considering relocating to or visiting Dickson County.” The Chamber also recruits through its Web site, www.dicksoncountychamber.com, which includes everything from vital statistics to event calendars to more in depth detail on Dickson County communities and landmarks. Most recently, the Chamber launched the “Buy Local” campaign, which is designed to encourage and educate residents on the importance of shopping within the county—they’ve sold more than 1,000 “Buy Local” tshirts to local businesses to help promote the campaign. On an ongoing basis, monthly coffees and luncheons are held to facilitate networking and keep members abreast of important local, state and federal issues. The Chamber also sponsors seminars to assist business owners with marketing, customer service, taxes, technology and other issues affecting their businesses. In 2012, the Chamber announced the inaugural Dickson Farm, Home and

Garden Show, held each March at the Dickson County Fairgrounds. The event promises to become a new County tradition, and an important fundraiser for the Chamber. Today, the Chamber comprises more than 400 members and a 15-member board of directors. Hamilton manages the office and staff, recruits new industry, assists current manufacturers and business people with various needs and oversees the Industrial Park. Tourism Director Rhonda Adams has increased tourism expenditures by 36 percent over the last decade, bringing more than $50 million in tourism dollars to the county. The Chamber’s efforts have increased the number of sports tournaments, attendance at festivals and other events, and brought new tour groups and conferences to the County. The Chamber promotes Dickson

County at trade shows, through targeted advertising and in magazines such as Bank Travel, Farm and Home, Tennessee Connections and the Tennessee Vacation Guide. Education Edge is an organization of educators, civic groups, parents, local government and business leaders dedicated to constantly improving local educational opportunities. Chamber Board Member Dana Ramsey leads a steering committee, made up of many alumni of Leadership Dickson County, in developing the goals and strategies for the program, which has been recognized as one of the top 10 programs in the nation by the Council for Corporate and School Partnerships. The Chamber also administers Leadership Dickson County, an intensive, ten-week program designed to develop a diverse network of leaders throughout the County, ensuring a broad understanding of the community’s assets, needs, and challenges, and nurturing an ever-growing group of advocates who work to support it. The Dickson County Chamber of Commerce is located at 119 Highway 70 East in Dickson, and is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.dicksoncountychamber.com.

We try to make it a little more personal. It’s just local, it’s just Dickson County.” The Rials provide county information in the form of maps, pamphlets, a Dickson County Fact Book and other giveaways. “We say it’s like a neighbor visiting a neighbor, it’s not like we’re giving a commercial,” Helen said. “It doesn’t take that long but of course we both are talkers so we have a tendency to get off track a lot. Joan said the majority of newcomers are excited to see her or her mother-in-law because the visits provide so much information – and coupons/gift cards. “We have a civic packet too that we give out that has voting registration forms, a map of Dickson County, anything about anything in the area.” Helen said. “Anything that is nonprofit that is a public thing we put in our civic packet.” Newcomers are given invitation cards from local merchants for free gifts.

DICKSON COUNTY MUNICIPAL AIRPORT

T

he Dickson County Municipal Airport-Pack Field caters primarily to executives and aviation enthusiasts. As Dickson County grows, a well-maintained, convenient airport is a selling point to industry leaders who are considering locating their businesses here, according to airport officials. The airport offers T-hangar storage and tie-down space for airplanes and is currently renovating the original building that was constructed in 1966. Recent improvements to the airport include repaving the ramp areas, and looking forward to the GPS WAAS approach. Liberty Aviation LLC is the fixed-base operator (FBO) for the Dickson County Municipal Airport-Pack Field through a contract with the Dickson Municipal Airport Authority. Liberty Aviation is a partnership of Ann and Larry Hansen, of Vanleer, and Jeff Tipton, who formerly worked for two previous FBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Tipton serves as director of operations, overseeing the day-to-day management of the facility.

WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR PILOTS Planes that land at the airport can receive the current weather conditions prior to landing by radio (123.875 MHz) or by telephone (615) 446-5481. To learn more about the Dickson Municipal Airport, call (615) 446-5962.

GARLAND PACK The Dickson County Municipal Airport-Pack Field is named after Garland Pack, an aviator who flew over the Burma hump, a mountains region in China where they were flying in supplies for the troops during World War II. He was from Dickson. He was born in 1912 and died in 1986.

The 55th version of the annual festival this year will celebrate Slayden and Vanleer on May 3-4. The event is always the first weekend in May. Next year, Dickson will be celebrated, finishing up the cities-focused theme. A Web site for the event provides a source of information and guidance for the festival.

The Old Timers Day Turkey Shoot

brings all ages out for a morning of fun, and the living history demonstrators fill the grounds of the War Memorial Building. OTD festivities include a wide variety of arts, crafts and great food. But the highlight of the weekend, at least judging by public turnout, is the Saturday morning parade. People lineup on the Dickson streets to watch some of their favorite old timers riding on floats, riding horses, driving antique cars or fire trucks or carrying flags.

DICKSON COUNTY FAIR The Dickson County Fair, a nearly 90-year tradition in the county, has traditionally started on Labor Day and features the fair entertainment locals have come to expect – pageants, rides, games, livestock, trucks, tractors and a demolition derby. The fair has a special daily, offering wristbands for unlimited rides or “carload night” where everyone in the car gets in for about $25 total. Also, a favorite of visitors, and particularly parents, is the Fairest of the Fair beauty pageant that goes from infants to teens. The fair, as it has for decades, features livestock and farm implement shows and crop barns. The Dickson County Fair is one of only a handful of county fairs in the state that are handicap-accessible in all areas including, parking, restrooms, the midway and the bleachers.

Rides at the Dickson County Fair bring smiles ? and disheveled hair ? to the face of locals. Marty Allison/The Herald MARTY ALLISON/THE HERALD.

Livestock and row crops are still the backbone of agriculture in Dickson County; however, UT Extension also provides information for the urban home-owner. Assistance with soil testing, lawn, garden and landscaping is available. The Dickson County Farmers Market continues to grow in terms of vendors, products and shoppers interested in fresh, locally grown food. The Market is located at 284 Cowan Road behind the Dickson County Emergency Management Agency. At the Market you can find products from jams and jellies to honey and traditional produce as well as homemade crafts. UT Extension provides educational support for local vendors. Livestock sales make up 75% of all agricultural crops sold in Dickson County totaling over $10 million annually. The largest section of that commodity group goes to the beef cattle industry. Dickson county is home to

well over 23,000 head of cattle (including calves) making it the largest agriculture industry in Dickson County. To promote the sustainability of this industry several programs are offered: » Master Beef Producer: This is a multi-session program addressing all issues related to raising beef cattle from pasture and land management to carcass merit and everything in between. » Forage Classes: Today’s economic times are hard on everyone including the beef industry. Making cattle work on forages is a must to remain profitable in today’s economic window. » Marketing Options: The days of taking cattle to the weekly sale to remain profitable are over. Producers must aggressively market their cattle in non-traditional ways to capture every penny possible. Tobacco is still a very large crop in Dickson County totaling over $2.2 million in annual sales. Corn and

soybeans can be found in Dickson County; however they are not as plentiful as beef cattle and tobacco. UT Extension provides solutions to your problems no matter how big or small. Our network of subject matter specialists at UT and other land grant universities has the information and resources to answer the most difficult questions.

4-H Youth Nearly 3,000 Dickson County boys and girls are enrolled in 4-H – the educational youth development program of The University of Tennessee Extension Service. Almost 70 4-H

Clubs hold educational meetings monthly, mostly on a classroom basis during school hours or during “activity” schedule at the middle and high schools. There is also a club for families who have chosen to home school which meets monthly. Membership is open to young people in grades four through twelve. The national 4-H emblem is a green four-leaf clover with a white “H” on each leaf. The H’s stand for head, heart, hands and health. As the only youth development program with ties to the United States Department of Agriculture and the state land grant university, the mission of 4-H is to produce self-directing, competent young people to become contributing members of society. Members have the opportunity to select from a list of 26 4-H projects, which relate to such subjects as agriculture, home economics, communication/personal skills, citizenship/service learning, health/wellness, environment/natural resources conservation, and workforce preparation. In Dickson County, the most popular 4-H projects are: Companion Animals, Line & Design, Horse, Photography, and Wildlife. Members may also participate in educational activities at their monthly school meetings including public speaking, demonstrations, posters, and baking contests. Emphasis is placed on group participation and the enhancement of self-esteem. Summer camps continue to be popular activities with large numbers of young people participating each year. Day camps and 4-H workshops focusing on Line & Design and Rocketry are offered during spring and fall school breaks. Livestock groups are still active and

youth aren’t required to own livestock in order to participate in project groups and/ or judging team training and competition. Current project groups include beef, horse, goat, poultry, dog, photography, wildlife, forestry, and shooting sports. Character education in Dickson County is implemented through the 4-H Youth Development program in partnership with the county’s Education Edge Steering Committee. The Six Pillars of Character are emphasized in the CHARACTER COUNTS! framework. Older 4-H’ers in junior and senior high have the opportunity to participate in various conferences and camps on the state, regional and national levels. Citizenship, leadership, wildlife conservation, electric energy, and personal development are among the areas of emphasis. Youth Leadership Dickson County is a series of experiential 4-H Youth Development activities taught in the “Service Learning – Youth Leadership” course at Creek Wood High School and Dickson County High Schools. The class runs throughout the school year with twenty students per class. Participants develop personal skills while learning about the community through tours, demonstrations, guest speakers, and other ‘hands on’ activities. 4-H programs are offered to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

AGRICULTURE

A

griculture, on a large and small scale, is a vital part of Dickson County’s past, present and fu-

ture. About 1,300 farms operate on 139,176 acres in the county, according to the 2007 Census of Agriculture. Dickson County’s market value of products sold totaled more than $13.4 million, including about $3.4 million in crops sales and more than $10 million in livestock sales. Dickson County sold more than $2.2 million of tobacco in 2007, making it the sixth most productive tobacco county in the state. Cattle is also a “cash cow” for farmers in the county, bringing in more than $8.7 million in 2007. Farming is also part-time work for many people in the county. Roughly 900 of the 1,285 farms are operated by someone who has a primary job other than farming. The Dickson County Farmers Market at 284 Cowan Road in Dickson caters to all of the farmers – and fresh produce and meat seekers – in the county. The county is also steeped in agricultural history with a total of 26 farms that have been owned and operated by the same family for more than 100 years. Some of them even date back to the late 1700s. We hope you enjoy reading about all that agriculture in Dickson County has to offer.

U.S. Census of Agriculture The United States Department of Agriculture’s Census of Agriculture, taken every five years, is a count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. The Census looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures, and other areas. Report forms for the 2007 Census of Agriculture were mailed to farm and ranch operators in December 2007. Producers responded to the Census by mail and, for the first time, had the option of filling out the Census online. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is preparing to mail the 2012 Census of Agriculture to millions of U.S. farmers and ranchers in late December. For the census, a farm is defined as any place that produced and sold, or

38

normally would have sold, $1,000 or more of agricultural products during the census year. “The census is the leading source of facts about American agriculture,” said Renee Picanso, director of the USDA’s Census and Survey Division. “The wealth of data available from the census includes statistics on small, family farms to large, corporate farms; information on young, beginning farmers to older, experienced farmers; and insight into traditional, rural farming versus trends in areas such as lifestyle and urban farming.” For more information about the Census of Agriculture, go online to www.agcensus.usda.gov.

Small farms way of life in Dickson County Small farms dot the Dickson County countryside. They are a part of the county’s heritage. Many farm families make money off their land, but not enough to live off of. Mostly, it’s in their blood. It’s what they grew up with, what they’ve known all their life. Seventy percent of the county’s farmers have a primary job other than farming. That’s increasingly the case statewide. A farmer in the 21st century produces for an increasingly complex and competitive marketplace driven by varied consumer demands and supplied by competitive producers nationwide, according to a report by the United States Department of Agriculture. Consumers want food that tastes good and is convenient, nutritious and inexpensive. American farmers have responded with changes in the types of crops and animals produced, closer links with food manufacturers and by adopting new technology and management practices to change with consumer demands, such as increasing desire for organic food. Farms can be grouped into three types: commercial, intermediate and rural residence. They are defined by their sales amount and primary occupation. Smaller farm operators combine non-farm jobs with farming. They include retired individuals and those who view farming as an investment and/or a way to enjoy rural amenities.

DICKSON LIVESTOCK CENTER

Nearly 900 of the 1,285 farms in Dickson County are operated by someone who has a primary job other than farming, according to the 2007 USDA Census of Agriculture. According to the 1992 agriculture census, 644 of the 1,012 farms in the county were operated by farmers who had primary occupation other than farming. Most of these farms have little dependence on farm economy for income. Even though most of these farms are not profitable as stand-alone farm businesses, these rural-residence farm households typically have incomes comparable to or exceeding those of non-farm households. Small farms — defined here as those with gross cash farm income (GCFI) less than $250,000 — account for 91 percent of all farms and 23 percent of agricultural production, according to a 2010 USDA report. Most small-farm production occurs on small commercial farms with GCFI of at least $10,000. Most places counted as small farms, however, are much smaller than that — 60 percent of small farms have GCFI of less than $10,000, and 22 percent have less than $1,000.

UTILITIES WATER AUTHORITY OF DICKSON COUNTY

DICKSON ELECTRIC SYSTEM

GREATER DICKSON GAS AUTHORITY

SANITATION IN DICKSON COUNTY

The Water Authority of Dickson County was formed as a regional water and wastewater service provider in 2002 by the consolidation of the City of Dickson Water and Wastewater System, Turnbull-White Bluff Utility District, and Harpeth Utility District. Combining these entities resulted in centralized water service to approximately 75% of the land mass and population of Dickson County as well as portions of surrounding counties. Since the consolidation, WADC has been used as a model throughout Tennessee for other utility districts interested in combining to provide regional services. WADC serves water customers in Dickson, Hickman, Cheatham, Humphreys, and Williamson Counties and wastewater customers in Dickson, Hickman and Williamson Counties. The Water Authority is well positioned to provide water and wastewater services to meet the challenges of its region.

Dickson Electric originated in 1905 and began purchasing power from TVA in 1936. At its inception Dickson Electric committed itself to providing the most reliable service at the lowest possible cost. One hundred years later, our commitment remains as true as ever. Map/DES Location and Surrounding Areas Dickson Electric System is a public utility serving 33,000 customers in five counties. Counties presently served are Dickson, Hickman, Cheatham, Houston and Montgomery. We strive to keep in touch with our customers ever changing needs so that we may better serve them.

The Authority serves natural gas to parts of Dickson, Cheatham, Houston, Montgomery and Stewart counties and 11 incorporated cities and towns within the above counties in Middle Tennessee. The Authority maintains 706 miles of distribution main ranging in size from two inch through 12 inch. This distribution network provides natural gas service over an area of approximately 131 square miles to 15,965 service lines as of December 2008. Natural gas is transported to the Authority for distribution by Tennessee Gas Pipeline (TGP) and delivered into the distributions system through four (4) connections to transmission mains owned by TGP. The natural gas is distributed within our pipeline system through 61 regulator stations. The Authority employs 61 full-time employees.

DICKSON COUNTY GOVERNMENT

The Dickson County Courthouse on the Charlotte Square is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is the oldest courthouse still in use as a courthouse in Tennessee.

About the Dickson County Commission and mayor » The 12 members of the Dickson County Commission are elected by county residents every four years. » Two commission meetings are held each month: A work session on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m., and the official monthly meeting on the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. Both meetings are held on the second floor of the commission chambers in the Courthouse Annex in downtown Charlotte.

Brief county government History On Aug. 4, 1804, less than a year after Dickson County was created, Charlotte was named the county seat.

History Burns was first known as Grade 42 and was a settlement. In 1862, a railroad that went through Grade 42 was constructed from Nashville to Johnsonville on the Tennessee River. In 1866, the name was changed to Burns Station in honor of Capt. Michael Burns, who had commanded a detachment encamped at Grade 42 during the Civil War. In 1882 the government deleted the word “Station.” The first pioneer to settle in the Burns area was Billy Austin and his family, who built a cabin on Beaver Dam Creek in 1803. The Public Well, a well-known landmark in Burns, was drilled in 1910 by Flay Bibb. The well is 103 feet deep and is located at Highway 47 and Main Street. The Amanda Richardson House is the oldest existing building in Burns. The Richardson House is located at Highway 47 and Meek Avenue. — History information from the Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

CUMBERLAND FURNACE

I

n 1803, Cumberland Furnace was an industrialized community with foundries, converting iron ore into pig iron. James Robertson purchased 640 acres on Bartonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek from a Revolutionary War private and turned it into an iron plantation, which today is unincorporated Cumberland Furnace. The iron works shut down in 1942 and Cumberland Furnace slipped back into a quiet existence. Remnants of the past can still be seen in Cumberland Furnace, from the old train depot, to the plantation commissary and old storefronts. The Drouillard Mansion still overlooks the valley. It was built following the Civil War. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Information from the Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

T

Pictured, from left, state Sen. Jim Summerville; state Rep. David Shepard, both of Dickson; Gov. Bill Haslam; and Dickson Mayor Don Weiss Jr. gather together for the July 2012 announcement of a nearly $630,000 state grant to continue downtown Dickson revitalization.

he city of Dickson is the central hub of activity in Dickson County. Though not the county seat, Dickson receives the most traffic as a result of its proximity to Interstate 40 and having more residents and businesses than anywhere else in the county. There are several grocery and retail stores as well as fast food and fine dining.

Downtown Dickson In November of 2011, Phase I of the downtown Dickson revitalization project was officially finished. The roughly $1.5 million renovation, which ultimately cost the city about $150,000 due to federal grants, took place along Main Street starting at Murrell Street on the north side and stretching to the midway point of South Main Street. The renovation included repaved roads, wider sidewalks, new light posts, benches, bike racks, and decorative brick and the city of Dickson seal in the walkways. The design firm for the project was Lose & Associates with local officials overseeing the project. The project's construction firm was Charles DeWeese Construction. The city has begun Phase II of the project, which will include renovation

of Main Street to Walnut Street and Rickert Avenue and work on College Street toward Highway 46. The city has applied for a grant toward Phase III.

Downtown Dickson revitalization timeline 2007 – Downtown Committee formed and looks at ways to revitalize downtown Dickson. May 2008 – Architectural firm Lose & Associates recommended by Downtown Committee and chosen by the city council to create the downtown development plan to support a grant application to TDOT, and for council members and downtown business owners to see. October 2008 – Initial designs shown

to city council and public for first time. August 2009 – Dickson is awarded an 80-20 matching grant for more than $1.2 million in funding through the Tennessee Department of Transportation's enhancement program. Due to incentives offered by the state, the city was able to meet certain criteria reducing the 80-20 match to 93-7. January 2010 – Lose & Associates hired as design firm for the project. December 2010 – Charles DeWeese Construction, Inc. selected as construction firm for project. March 2011 – Work begins on the project Nov. 27, 2011 – Ribbon-cutting held for Phase I of downtown Dickson revitalization.

DICKSON HISTORY

This photograph of downtown Dickson, facing east from the corner of College and Main streets, was taken sometime prior to 1910. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE RAGAN FAMILY

I

n the early 1800s, several iron furnaces and forges were located near the area that today is Dickson. This was during the iron ore-mining boom. On Dec. 3, 1860, William Crutcher purchased 533 acres for more than $2,000. He then constructed the first building – 16-by-16 feet and made of log – in what is now Dickson near where Bank of Dickson stands on north Main Street.

Smeedsville Around1862, one of the men in charge of railroad construction from Nashville to Johnsonville on the Tennessee River was civil engineer E.C. Smeed. His office was where Dickson is today. In his honor, the name of the rail stop was called Smeedsville. On May 10, 1864, the railroad was finished and the first train passed through Dickson County headed west out of Nashville to the Tennessee River.

Dickson established Crutcher eventually defaulted on payment of his land and in September 1867 the court ordered the land to be sold at public auction. On Oct. 7, 1867, records show Conrad Berringer purchased the land for $5,200 and at once began to establish a town. Within six years, the town had been established, platted, chartered and the name changed from Smeedsville to Dickson. The name Dickson officially came into being on Jan. 6, 1873, as a petition was filed with the Clerk of the Chancery Court in Charlotte to establish the town of Dickson. On Dec. 2, 1873, the charter was granted for the town of Dickson.

Charter abolished With a population of nearly 800, the citizens of Dickson voted to abolish its charter on March 16, 1883. It is believed this was done to close the growing number of saloons in town – state law prohibited the sale of liquor in unincorporated towns. The act to abolish the charter was

signed by Gov. Ben McMillin on March 19, 1883. The town existed in an unincorporated manner until it was re-chartered on April 22, 1899, with a population of a little over 1,300 individuals.

Two county courthouses A county election was held on Sept. 1, 1898 to determine if the county seat and courthouse would be moved from Charlotte to Dickson. The majority were for the move. Still, a compromise was made in the state legislature to divide the county into seven equal districts and have a courthouse in both Dickson and Charlotte. In 1925, the Courthouse in Dickson was condemned by an engineer hired by the State of Tennessee. On April 26, 1926, Dickson County leaders voted against the funding of a new courthouse in Dickson. On July 9, 1928, work crews began demolishing the old courthouse in Dickson. In 1931, a bill was passed abolishing the circuit court of the town of Dickson. — History information from the Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

SLAYDEN

Dancers have a good time to a song performed by the Maple Valley Boys at the Slayden Community Center. JOSH ARNTZ/THE HERALD

S

layden has an estimated population of Slayden 178 people. The second weekend in September, the Slayden Community Center hosts its annual homecoming. The Masonic Camp Lodge No. 455 serves a ham and egg breakfast to kick off the event. The local Free and Accepted Masons organization meets at 7 p.m. the fourth Thursday each month. The Slayden Community Center board meets at 7:30 p.m. the first Sunday of the month. The community center is located at 100 School Street. The Masonic lodge sits right behind the center.

History Slayden is named after a prominent Virginia family who settled in the Bartons Creek and Woods Valley area in the early 1800s near where the town is today. Timber and later tobacco appears were the primary draw. Even today, timber and tobacco are important sources of income for those living in the Slayden area. The town was platted in 1898 by

70

Robert B. Stone. Slayden was incorporated in 1913. The charter set up a form of government that is still in effect today. The incorporation of Slayden occurred 10 years after the L & N Railroad had established what was known as the Clarksville Mineral Branch. Slayden was originally called Slaydenview, but at the time the railroad made its way from Clarksville to Dickson, the official postal name became Slayden. The first school in Slayden was organized in the 1890s. That building burned in 1929. The present Slayden Community Center was rebuilt after the fire. Grades 1-8 were taught until 1962, when the students were transferred to Vanleer. The Great Depression caused the railroad to be taken up in 1936. In 1984, the train depot was bought by a developing company, and moved to Grinderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Switch to make it a Minnie Pearl museum. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Historical information from the Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

VANLEER

Vanleer Elementary School

V

anleer is a growing town in Dickson County. In recent years, new businesses have arrived, including Dollar General, Tri-County Farmers Restaurant and the Dutch Country Kitchen. Also on Highway 49, which doubles as the town Main Street, are Jarman’s Market, Johnson’s Market and a U.S. Post Office. The town also provides a volunteer fire department, and has an Advanced Life Support ambulance on call 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday.

History The town of Vanleer, incorporated in 1915, was named for Anthony Wayne Van Leer. He was a large landholder, farming over 20,000 acres in what’s Vanleer today. Cloverdale Academy, located on Bell Hollow Road, was a college founded in the 1840s and operated by Professor Bell. The college continued until 1899. One of the first schools in Vanleer was called Ebenezer School. It was located on the Oscar Bull place on Old Dry Hollow Road. A second school – a one-room log building – named Ebenezer was built later on Highway 49 next to Hamilton Cemetery. Antioch School was built later across the street from Hamilton Cemetery on the Victor Wall farm. The two-story Vanleer Junior High was built at the intersection of Highway and Cedar Creek. Classes moved to a brick building in 1941 at the intersection of Highway 49 and School Road. Vanleer Elementary School was built across from Vanleer Town Hall in 2003.

The Walter A. Bell Vanleer Municipal Building, located on Highway 49 in Vanleer, is home to Town Hall, the volunteer fire department and the community center.

WHITE BLUFF

W

hite Bluff is a growing community situated in the northeast part of Dickson County. The town of about 3,206 people has been planning for growth expected within the next 5-10 years. Since 2009, the town has made a number of improvements, including establishing the Jennie Woodworth Library, renovating sidewalks along Main Street, replacing old sewer lines and creating a growth plan. In February 2011, the town established its first ambulance unit, located at the fire station. The police force changed vehicles in 2010, from the traditional Ford Crown Victoria to a progressive hybrid, the Toyota Prius. Mike Holman, who is now the White Bluff police chief, came up with the idea as a cost-savings measure to cut back on fuel. Residents can find recreational opportunities at the Field of Dreams playground, which has a walking track. A walking track also is located at the Veteran’s Park ball field, along with a dog park. Plans for a skate park and new community center are underway too. Annually residents celebrate the Main Street Festival, during which the town closes Main Street allowing patrons to enjoy jambalaya, arts, crafts and live music. Other events include the Grillin’ & Greens Cook-Off, Electric Light Christmas parade, and Apple Butter Festival. Schools in town are White Bluff Elementary and William James Middle.

WHITE BLUFF HISTORY

A monument bearing over 350 names of White Bluff area veterans – living and deceased – was unveiled in March 2009. The monument is located in front of White Bluff Town Hall along Highway 70.

T

he town of White Bluff was incorporated in 1869. At that time it had a slightly different name: Whitebluffs. The name was derived from the white bluffs overlooking “Turnbull Creek” where the army had set up camp. On June 1, 1937, the town postmaster, James K. StClair had the name officially changed to White Bluff. With the railroad and U.S. Highway 70 going through White Bluff, the town grew. In 1946, there was a fire that de-

78

stroyed much of the town. The fire went across both Highway 70 and Taylor Town Road, taking several businesses on the south side, buildings on the west side of Taylor Town Road and on the east side of the James Building it took the Methodist Church. A short time later another fire took an apartment building on Jackson Street, killing two children. There was no fire department and so Zollie Bibb Jr., along with others in the town, worked to start a volunteer fire department. Only one school existed in White

Bluff in the early- to mid-1900s, William James School. It was for firstgraders to seniors. The post office was at one time where the funeral home is now located and then on the corner of Main and Jackson streets. Williams James was converted to a middle school in 1972. Today White Bluff is a bedroom community of Nashville and the lifestyle is much faster. — History information from the Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

PRIVATE SCHOOLS United Christian Academy

Dickson Adventist School

Dickson Academy

Located on Highway 46, just three miles north of Interstate 40, UCA was founded in 1985 by United Free Will Baptist Church. It is a non-denominational Christian school that focuses on character, culture and Christ, and offers an excellent private education to students grades K3 through 12th. UCA provides daily Bible study, weekly chapel services and uses Abeka, a Christ-centered curriculum. Limited class size in each grade insures a low teacher to student ratio. Students enrolled at UCA consistently earn superior Stanford Achievement Test scores. UCA ranks among the top 10 Christian schools in the state of Tennessee. UCA has an active and involved PTF that assists in school fundraisers and activities. The president is Rhonda Moore. Morning and afternoon extended care is available for all ages. Extended care and daily lunch is included in the full-time K3 and K4 tuition.

Principal and head teacher Mary McDowell has been teaching church school for seven years. She earned Bachelor of Arts in History at Southern Adventist University. “The Dickson Adventist School curriculum is designed so that students are consistently presented with Jesus and the possibilities He has for each life. A low studentteacher ratio gives opportunity for the teacher to share Christ with students on a more personal basis. In Adventist education, the home, school, and church cooperate together in preparing students for citizenship here on this earth and in the new earth to come,” according to the school’s website. Mission statement: “Our mission is to prepare students for eternity, by providing an excellent education that seeks a balanced development of the whole person – intellectually, physically, and spiritually.”

Dickson Academy was founded in 2010 as a college preparatory middle and high school to serve Dickson and the surrounding communities. DA is still in the process of becoming accredited, and will be complete before our first graduating class in 2015. Dickson Academy recently joined the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference and plans to compete this school year in cross country, golf, girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, and track and field, with more sports to be added as the school grows.

The Renaissance Center in Dickson

THE RENAISSANCE CENTER 855 State Route 46 South in Dickson (615 740-5600 www.rcenter.org

T

he Renaissance Center building has been a staple of the Dickson landscape for over 10 years, a hard-to-miss nonprofit facility that meshes fine arts, performing arts, technology, education and film and live music entertainment. It’s a one-of-a-kind attraction for Dickson County – and for many other places as well. Founded by The Jackson Foundation in 1999, The Renaissance Center has seen more than 250,000 visitors a year participate in events from classes and workshops in art, music, theatre and dance. There are also award-winning television productions, professional and community theatre programs and a planetarium.

DICKSON FACT BOOK 2013

Thousands of children throughout the region visit each year for educational and entertaining field trips. Hundreds of children take part in Camp Renaissance summer camp, which incorporates traditional outdoor activities with the cultural opportunities of The Renaissance Center. Viewers across Tennessee watch the center’s award-winning outdoors adventure television show, “Tennessee’s Wild Side,” while visitors enjoy the professional dinner theatre productions as well as community and youth theatre productions. Corporate meetings, inservice trainings, civic organization meetings, weddings, proms, social dances, recitals and conferences have and can be held in a variety of meeting places within the 110,000-squarefoot building.

HISTORY The Jackson Foundation was created in 1995 when Columbia/HCA purchased

the non-profit Goodlark Regional Medical Center. It was named for the three brothers, Drs. Lawrence, William and Jimmy Jackson, who founded the hospital in 1958. After years of planning and visiting museums, science centers, performing arts centers, cultural centers and other institutions nationwide, the foundation members’ dream came true with the opening of The Renaissance Center on Aug. 5, 1999. Founding board chairman Dr. Jimmy Jackson, who passed away in 2001, wanted The Renaissance Center to provide opportunities in the arts while emphasizing the importance of technology.

EDUCATION Visual Arts Classes and workshops are offered for all ages, beginning to advanced students, in varied art mediums during the spring, summer and fall. Regularly evolving course selections include painting, drawing, photog-

raphy, darkroom, stained glass, pottery, fiber arts, multimedia, Native American arts, sculpture, woodturning, floral arrangement and more. Dance The elementary division of the dance department aims to help children build a good foundation of dance skills. Students will be enrolled in the appropriate class level based on an assessment. The dance department’s young adult division teaches skills and provides opportunities to audition for and perform in Renaissance Center productions. The goal is to prepare students for an arts future and/or establish lifelong respect for the arts. The dance department’s open division is primarily for adults. Beginners are welcome and classes range from ballroom to yoga.

DICKSON HELP CENTER

Clothing Department at the thrift store in the Help Center.

T

he Dickson County Help Center is sometimes the only resource that some county residents have to obtain food, clothing and financial assistance. The Help Center in Dickson provides aid to Dickson County residents who are experiencing a temporary financial crisis. The aid comes in the form of food, clothing, prescription medication, help with utility bills and temporary shelter. The center also serves families in Dickson County who have lost everything due to fire or other Boehm acts of nature. The Help Center is located at 103 W. College St. in downtown Dickson. There is plenty of parking from the Murrell Street entrance, which runs between Taylor Funeral Home & Dickson First Presbyterian Church. The center has 15,000-square-feet thrift store retail space, allowing for a larger selection of items. The thrift

DICKSON FACT BOOK 2013

store's revenue covers the center's overhead costs (staff salaries, utilities, etc.), with leftover profit going to the assistance program. The thrift store is open MondaySaturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; the assistance office Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (closed noon-1 p.m. for lunch) and Fridays 9 a.m.-noon. The center maintains a food bank, which is stocked through private donations and special food drives conducted by local schools, the U.S. Postal Service (letter carriers) and other organizations. Kroger, Wal-Mart, Odom's Tennessee Quality Foods and Second Harvest Food Bank also make regular donations.

Volunteers, thrift store The center depends largely on volunteers, and more are always needed. The Help Center operates a thrift store where donated items are sold at bargain prices. Anyone is welcome to shop at the thrift store. The store revenue pays for the Help Center's overhead. This enables 100 percent of mon-

etary donations and the remaining revenue from the store to be used to aid those in need. In the past, the Help Center has received various amounts of funding from the United Way of Dickson County, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Dickson County government, and the city of Dickson. The majority of funding comes from local churches, civic organizations, businesses and private individuals. The Dickson Electric System, the Greater Dickson Gas Authority and the Water Authority of Dickson County all have programs where their customers can add a dollar or more to their utility bill each month and that money is donated to the Help Center. For those wishing to drop off donations, parking is available at the Murrell Street entrance. the center accepts donations Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. from the Dennison Place Alley. You access the alley from College Street, next to Ragan's Friendly Neighbor Furniture Store. Renee Boehm is the executive director of the Help Center.

HUMANE SOCIETY OF DICKSON COUNTY

I

magine the hours of time and the amount of food, veterinary services and supplies you would need if you took care of 40 dogs and 30 cats every day. That is the level of resources required to sustain the Humane Society of Dickson County animal shelter, which took care of over 620 animals in 2012. Thanks to generous foster families and increased adopt-a-thons, the Humane Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adoption rate has continued to increase over the past few years. However the organization continues to see a rise in homeless pets. There are more homeless and abandoned animals needing homes in Dickson Higgins County than there are places to care for them. When the shelter reaches capacity, the shelter staff have to place animals on a waiting list. This is not easy on shelter staff or the individuals wanting to find immediate homes for the animal(s) in their care, but this is a reality for animals in Dickson County. Residents can help the overpopulation problem by having their pets spayed (females) and neutered (males). This is the only way to reduce the overpopulation of animals in our community. For a small fee, the Humane Society of Dickson County accepts dogs and cats and care for them until they are adopted. This fee covers the costs of necessary vaccinations. The fee is $20 per animal or $30 for a litter, please contact the shelter before coming. Not just any animal is accepted into the shelter. The pet has to be healthy, friendly, and social. Feral animals will be turned away and directed to animal control. To adopt an animal from the shelter there is an $80 fee. The adoption fee covers the cost of the spay or neuter and a small portion of the cost to care for the animal while it is at the shelter. In addition to the fee, a refundable deposit is required to adopt a puppy or kitten. Foster care is an integral key to finding new homes for animals. Foster families agree to care for animals until

they can be adopted or sent to a rescue group. The shelter also relies on volunteers to help with caring for the animals and working at off-site adoption locations. Billy Jo Higgins is the executive director of the Humane Society. All animal abuse cases in Dickson County are referred to Dickson Animal Control, 441-9591 or 441-4651. The Humane Society is a no-kill shelter. To stop abuse before it starts, staff offers information to adults and children about responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of all living creatures. They visit local schools, civic groups and organizations in order to provide education about the responsible treatment of animals. The Humane Society of Dickson County is a nonprofit 501c3 that is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, spay and neuter promotion, and ensuring the best possible quality of life for animals. It relies on donations from individuals, fundraising events, grants, and government assistance. Spay or neuter your pet, adopt your next pet from the shelter, and contact us if you want to help make Dickson County a better place for animals.

omen Are Safe (WAS) is the only domestic violence program serving victims in Dickson, Hickman, Humphreys and Perry counties. The staff members, the board and the 50 volunteers who have considerable training and experience in the WOMEN ARE field of domestic SAFE violence work diligently to protect 719 E.

They give fe.org women the knowledge of the legal and human rights. And we provide women with the necessary resource to break free of the violence and establish safe lives for themselves and their

128

children. There is a 24 hour crisis line, court advocacy, temporary emergency shelter, drop-in counseling, advocacy referrals and support groups to victims of domestic violence. It is quite important to note that all of our services are free to our clients and we are completely confidential. The client’s safety is always our first priority. Each victim’s story is heart breaking and different, advocates work with clients to assess their specific needs and explain their options. Some may just need a bus ticket, others need medical care, counseling, financial assistance, job training or education, housing, legal aid, child care, and employment. In addition to assisting survivors and their children, WAS is active in the communities. They provide education presentation about the dynamics of domestic violence to local classrooms as well as numerous businesses, civic and church groups. Such presentations

include: Boys Against Violence, a 6 week curriculum developed by Russ Funk that engages middle school boys in activities which promote gender respect; Teen Dating and Healthy Relationships; and RADAR, a one hour workshop offering ways to help a friend, coworker or church member who is a victim of domestic violence. Based on reported cases, it is estimated that one in four families experience violence on a regular basis. Not all cases of violence are reported, however, so it is impossible to determine the exact number of victims and it is generally agreed that the problem is far more prevalent than these numbers indicate. Because victims are often reluctant to talk about the abuse, domestic violence is a crime that hides behind shame and fear. Many people feel that this issue does not affect them because they are not primary victims and they don’t know anyone who talks about it.

Once the idea of an endowment fund took hold, other citizens joined the group and then affiliated with the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. CFMT provides stability, inCOMMUNITY the vestment experFOUNDATION tise and legal work FOR DICKSON necessary for the endowment to COUNTY succeed. Dickson PO Box 1243 County citizens Dickson, TN 37056 identified three (615)446-3302 major areas in www.cfmt.org/ which to concenexplore/affiliates/ trate Foundation efforts: educational opportunities for citizens of all ages, leadership and citizenship initiatives, and programs that will improve the quality of life. In fall last year, ten grants totaling $39,000 were awarded to local 501(c)3 institutions and will impact the lives of Dickson County children, students, adults, and senior citizens. Since CFDC began making grants in 2002, a total of $290,500 has been distributed to local groups. The CFDC endowment is like a savings account for the community – the principal will remain intact, and its earnings will be used to make grants and scholarships in the areas our citizens’ desire. The goal is to build to an endowment of many millions. CFDC is governed by a community board with representation from all areas of the county. The major fundraising event for the foundation is the Dickson County Invitational Golf Tournament (DCI) which will take place on Friday, September 20, 2013 at Greystone Golf Club. There are many ways to participate in CFDC. Donors may make direct donations of cash, property, or stocks or designate CFDC as a beneficiary in wills.
