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 a brief overview of the history of Dickson County, gathered 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.

Dickson County born

early development.

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

Nature spurs development

12

The fertile soils and natural resources drew settlers to this area in the 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 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.

Railroad, major roads change 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 FRO M 12

Other significant dates in Dickson County history: May 10, 1864 The railroad was 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 19531959 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.

These bars of pig iron are on display at the Cumberland Iron Works Museum in Cumberland Furnace. Pig iron was produced in Cumberland Furnace throughout the 1800s when the furnace was in operation, or “in blast” 24 hours, seven days a week. The furnace reduced ore and limestone flux into molten metal and waste material by subjecting the charcoal fuel to a continuous blast of air. The high temperatures separated the iron from other elements. These impurities were drawn off as slag. Men made the liquid iron flow into prepared channels in the floor of the casting house. When cool, these large hardened bars (known as pigs) could be transported to forges or rolling mills for further refinement. The highly trained molders then fashioned cast iron consumer products.

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

DICKSON COUNTY’S HISTORY MUSEUM The Clement Railroad Hotel Museum is a state-owned museum housed in the nearly 100-year-old former Hotel Halbrook that showcases Dickson County’s history in addition to exhibits on civil rights and education, railroad history, the Civil War and former longtime state Gov. Frank G. Clement. Clement was born in the museum building when it was a hotel. For more information, go online to: www.clementrailroadmuseum.org.

HUMANE SOCIETY OF DICKSON COUNTY Imagine the staff, food, veterinary services and supplies you would need if you took care of more than 3,000 animals. That is the level of resources required to sustain the Humane Society of Dickson County, which cares for more than 250 animals per month. Thanks to generous foster families and increased adopt-athons staffed by volunteers, the humane society’s adoption rate has continued to increase over the past few years. However, the department continues to see a rise in homeless pets. Starting this year, the humane society will began accepting pets for adoption for a small fee. The fee helps to cover the costs of necessary tests, vaccinations and spay/neuter for animals. The fee is $20 per animal, or $30 for a litter. Not just any animal will be accepted. The pets will have to

26

be healthy, friendly and social. Feral animals will be turned away and directed to animal control services. When they run out of capacity for the volume of homeless and abandoned animals brought to their door, their shelter staff must undertake the heartwrenching task of euthanizing animals to make adequate room. No humane society wants to euthanize any animal, but this is the reality for Dickson County. Residents can help by spaying and neutering pets to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem and put an end to the euthanasia of healthy animals. Citizens also can help by fostering an animal. Foster care is an integral key to finding new homes for the animals. Foster families care for animals until they can be adopted locally, or sent to one of numerous rescue groups.

All animal abuse cases in Dickson County are now referred to Dickson’s animal control officers (441-9591). To stop abuse before it starts, the staff frequently teaches adults and children about responsible pet ownership and humane treatment for all living creatures. The staff and volunteers visit local schools, civic groups and other community organizations to educate about responsible treatment of animals and the mission of the Humane Society of Dickson County. The HSDC receives minimal government support – less than 5 percent of the operating budget funds come from Dickson County government, and no funding whatsoever is received from the local city governments. Because of this, HSDC must rely on the kindness of Middle Tennesseans and local fundraisers to survive.

DICKSON COUNTY UT EXTENSION UT Extension UT Extension provides a gateway to the University of Tennessee as the outreach unit of the Institute of Agriculture. With an office in every county, UT Extension delivers educational programs and research-based information to citizens throughout the state of Tennessee. Working with farmers, families, youth, and communities, Extension helps improve people's lives by addressing problems and issues at the local, state, and national levels. Educational programs are open to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex or disability.

Livestock and row crops are still the backbone of agriculture in Dickson County; however, UT Extension also provides education and 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 County Ambulance and Emergency Management Service. At the market you can find products from jams and jellies to bee and traditional produce as well as homemade crafts. UT Extension provides educational support for local vendors. Livestock sales make up 75% of all agriculture 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 pro-

gram 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.

UT Extension in partnership with the Tennessee Association for Family and Community Education develops leadership skills and provides individuals and families with up-to-date educational programs addressing critical issues.

4-H Youth Development Nearly 4,000 Dickson County boys and girls are enrolled in 4-H – the educational youth development program of The University of Tennessee Extension Service. Almost 73 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 4-12. 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. Projects Members have the opportunity to select from a list of 26 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. Conferences, camps 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 at these special 4-H events. 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. Parents and other volunteers are always needed to assist Extension agents with activities. Every parent can help by showing interest and enthusiasm for projects selected by his/her child. By being aware of project requirements and staying abreast of current 4-H events and activities through the monthly 4-H newsletter, parents help their children enjoy a positive 4-H experience. Project leaders share their knowledge and skills in one particular area, such as sewing, dog, horse, shooting sports, etc. with interested 4-H’ers. They meet with small groups once, twice, or at regular intervals to teach specific skills, or to prepare for upcoming activities like judging team competition.

36

The drive-in, located at 3020 U.S. Highway 70 East near Montgomery Bell State Park, is open on a seasonal basis on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Carl’s Perfect Pig Carl Teitloff’s restaurant makes the list due to being a destination-style landmark in Dickson County.

One of those people was Emeril Lagasse, the celebrity chef, author and TV personality, who visited in 2002 to tape a TV episode.

There’s also catfish, ribeye, chicken, burgers, vegetables, banana pudding and cobbler, among other foods.

OLD TIMERS DAY In 2010, Old Timers Day festival kicked off a five-year theme “All Roads Lead Home,” spotlighting a different county city each year. The 54th annual festival in 2012 will celebrate Burns on May 4-5. The event is always the first weekend in May. Next year the festival will commemorate both Slayden and Vanleer, and then in 2014 Dickson will be celebrated. A website for the event provides a source of information and guidance for the festival. You can visit the site at www.dicksoncountyoldtimersday.com. As the date draws near, more event news and a detailed schedule will be provided on the site.

Old Timers Day traditions, activities The Old Timers Day festivities begin Friday night with the Ms. Old Timers contest, the Liars Contest and the Homecoming Jubilee. One of the most popular events is the Liars Contest, when contestants compete to tell the most amusing, tallest tales they can imagine. The Mrs. Old Timers Pageant is also always a favorite of festival-goers as some of the loveliest of Dickson County’s more mature women vie for the trophy. The contestants tell of their favorite memories and speak about the pride they take in their family and their community. Bluegrass shows have been held on Main Street in front of Ragan’s Friendly Neighbor Store for years. This year’s musical entertainment will offer three stages for musical performances – a gospel music stage, a stage to highlight local talent, and the Garland Buick-GMC stage offering gospel, bluegrass, country, rock, etc. Quilt shows and a Saturday morning pancake breakfast are other popular traditions, and the antique car and trac-

The city of Charlotte float that was to be shown in the 2010 Old Timers Day. That was the first Old Timers Day, scheduled the weekend of the historic 2010 Middle Tennessee flood, to be canceled.

What: 54th Old Timers Day When: May 4-5 Where: Downtown Dickson and the Dickson County Fairgrounds Website: www.dicksoncountyoldtimersday.org

Byrd Armstrong won the 2010 Liars Contest after spinning tales about a husband who noticed that his wife’s “love dress” needed “ironing” and tall tales about audience members. tor displays are always well attended. Vance Smith's Grand Old Hatchery puts on an Old Timers show Saturday night. Also that evening, the Tennessee City Mini-Tractor Pull will take place at the Dickson

County Fairgrounds. The Robert Spicer Memorial Dance Competition is scheduled Saturday as well, in the War Memorial Building. Spicer is a mainstay of Old Timers Day, always keeping the crowd entertained and

involved. 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, an 86-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.

Traditional prize-winning games are part of the fun of the Dickson County Fair.

DICKSON COUNTY’S RELAY FOR LIFE Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event that offers everyone in the community a chance to participate in the fight against cancer. During the event, teams of individuals “camp out” at Dickson County High School and take turns walking or running around the track. The 2012 event is 5 p.m. Friday, June 8 through 5 a.m. Saturday, June 9. Each team has a booth at its campsite featuring food, games or other activities for the entire family to enjoy.

oring cancer survivors and memorializing cancer patients who have lost the fight. Luminaria can be purchased at the event for $5. Event chairperson this year is Janice Shelton. Cochair is Mary Littleton. All of the funds raised through Relay For Life go to the American Cancer Society.

DICKSON COUNTY FARMERS MARKET Dickson County boasts a very strong and continuously growing Farmers Market. Formerly located behind the library, the Dickson County Farmers Market has relocated to 284 Cowan Road, behind the county Ambulance and Emergency Management Service. At the market you can find products from jams and jellies to bee and traditional produce, as well as homemade crafts. The Farmers Market was started just a few years ago, but continues to grow and attract sellers and buyers of fresh locally grown produce. The market opens in mid-April and runs throughout the summer. Several venders offer seasonal produce from early April into autumn. The Dickson County Chamber of Commerce and the Five River Resource Conservation Development spearheaded the event and the UT Extension Office oversees the market. For more information, call Brad Greenfield at 4462788 or e-mail jgreenfi@utk.edu. Information about the Farmer's Market is also routinely posted online at www.dicksoncountyag.com.

DICKSON COUNTY FESTIVALS

Straw steadily pours out of the 90-year-old wheat thresher at the Gray Boy’s Old Time Wheat Threshing event.

Apple Butter Festival The annual Apple Butter Festival, hosted at Crossroads Church in White Bluff in the fall, has grown over its nearly 20-year history. The festival also includes a live band, hayrides, a candle-making workshop, a weaver, a blacksmith, silent auction and an inflatable castle for kids. Attendees and booth workers dress in period costume. And there are plenty of concessions as well. Proceeds from most sales go to Crossroads Church.

Charlotte Festival The Charlotte Festival, a tradition since the 1970s, is held in August on the historic Charlotte Square with live music, activities for children and a parade. In the morning, the Annual Red Hawk 5K Run, hosted by the Creek Wood High School's Virtual Enterprise Class, is held. The festival includes food vendors, inflatables for the children, a

cake walk, a toy walk, bingo at First Federal Bank and other activities. A pancake breakfast at Charlotte Fagan United Methodist Church is also held in the morning.

Promise Land Festival The Promise Land Festival, held annually in June, celebrates the heritage of a historic African-American community near Charlotte. The event takes place on land adjoining the Promise Land School, which was placed on the national register of historic places in 2007. There is a hat contest with “fanciest” and “fittest” among the categories. Musical groups and dancers often perform. Freshly grilled and cooked food is also plentiful at the event.

Wheat Threshing The annual Gray Boys Old Time Wheat Threshing draws visitors every July to Virginia and Earl Gray’s Hill Top Farm in Dickson. Fires and pits burn

for hot dogs and blacksmithing. Children are given rides in wagons pulled by small tractors. Adults and kids are carried around the grounds by huge horses pulling a flatbed wagon. Antique tractors are on display along with restored and newer tractors and other farm implements from back in the day. And, of course, the giant, old-time wheat thresher is the center of attention. Live music is also part of the event.

White Bluff Main Street Festival The White Bluff Main Street Festival is held annually in downtown White Bluff in October along Main Street with dozens of booths displaying arts and crafts, food and demonstrations. Spicy foods are normally abundant, including chili, jambalaya and barbequed sandwiches. Live music is performed throughout the day.

BURNS

Mayor Jeff Bishop (615) 533-1623

Commissioner Jerry Baker (615) 740-0345

Commissioner Chris Holland (615) 830-4657

An early September morning at Montgomery Bell State Park in Burns.

Burns’ long and storied history has ranged from a booming railroad town, invaded by passenger pigeons at one point, to the quaint and quiet setting it offers in present day. The town is poised for significant development in the future with proposed Planned Unit Developments bringing over 500 new homes, possibly within the next decade. A new middle school adjacent is also expected in the near future. Initial construction work for a 50-acre recreational park off Highway 96 near Stuart-Burns Elementary School is nearly complete, and two baseball/softball fields have already taken shape. Before the end of 2012, officials expect the park to have a concession stand and dog park finished, with lighting for the fields. Presently, youngsters in the Burns Little League baseball and the Burns Cowboys football youth programs share Mark Whitaker Memorial Field, located in the same vicinity as the old Burns School across from Town Hall. This area also boasts a skate park, and has witnessed Jerry “The King” Lawler wrestle in the old school gym. South Dickson Junior Pro Basketball League also plays several games at the old Burns school gym. For get-togethers, the recently renovated Burns Community Center at 106 College St. is available to rent any day of the week by contacting Town Hall. Burns also offers its own police and fire departments, staffed with full-time and part-time personnel. The Burns Fire

62

Department employs four full-time firefighters, with 20 volunteers. Melvin Sullivan serves as fire chief. The Burns Police Department staffs seven officers, who work in tandem with active reserves. Tase Sturgill serves as police chief.

History Burns was first known as Grade 42. In 1862, a railroad was constructed from Nashville to Johnsonville, located on the Tennessee River. The railroad went through a settlement area called Grade 42, now known as Burns. In 1866, the name was changed to Burns Station. The name was 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.

CUMBERLAND FURNACE

The old Cumberland Furnace railroad depot sits in freshly fallen snow.

In 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. SOURCE: Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

DICKSON

Dickson Mayor Don Weiss Jr. cuts the ribbon on Main Street signaling the completion of Phase I of the downtown Dickson revitalization. The 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, the revitalized downtown Dickson 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.

68

Dickson City Hall The design firm in charge of the project was Lose & Associates. The project's construction firm was Charles DeWeese Construction. The city has applied for another TDOT enhancement grant for 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.

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 – The city of 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. The grant required the city to pay $300,000 for the project. Later, due to meeting state deadlines, the city's payment was reduced to $150,000. 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 – Ribboncutting held for Phase I of downtown Dickson revitalization.

DICKSON HISTORY

In 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 Around 1862, 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. The train was carrying a load of Union troops and Andrew Johnson, military governor of Tennessee.

70

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.

VANLEER Vanleer is a growing town in Dickson County. In the last few years, several new businesses have arrived, including Dollar General, Tri-County Farmers Restaurant and the Dutch Country Kitchen. Also off 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.

Dutch Country Kitchen in Vanleer.

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.

WHITE BLUFF

Rover’s Playpen, a dog-walking park at Veteran’s Memorial Park, opened in October.

White Bluff City Hall opened in January 2008.

82

White 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. Then Assistant Police Chief Mike Hol-

man 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. 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.

Home schooling Dickson County requires that parents interested in home schooling submit a “Notice of Intent to Home School” form which can be picked up at the Dickson County Board of Education or online at www.tn.gov/ education/homeschool. Dickson County follows the state requirement that parents must meet educational standards if they want to home school their children. Parents of kindergarten through eighth grade students must have a high school diploma or GED, while parents of high school students are required to have a baccalaureate degree. Another home schooling option is through a church-related school. Dickson Adventist School and United Christian Academy are both state-recognized church-related schools.

Tennessee Technology Center at Dickson The Tennessee Technology Center at Dickson is one of the state's top technical schools in terms of size, graduation and placement rates – and it’s growing. In November 2011, TTC Dickson broke ground on a $16 million expansion of its Clarksville Extension Campus located on Guthrie Highway outside Clarksville. The 60,000-square-foot expansion will triple the size of the existing student body at the location. The staff is expected to take occupancy of the addition April 1, 2013. The expansion will put the school size on par with the larger technology centers in Nashville, KnoxTENNESSEE ville and MorrisTECHNOLOGY town. CENTER AT The school, DICKSON which began in 1964, offers a lineup Where: 740 State Route of 14 full-time train46 S. in Dickson ing programs and at Tuition: $2,976 annually least 20 part-time for on-ground proevening programs grams; $3,747 annually offered in Dickson, for full-time online Cheatham, Humstudents; and supplies phreys, Montgoand books are in addimery and Williamtion to tuition cost son counties. ProPhone: (615) 441-6220 grams offered onWebsite: www.ttcdickline are Business son.edu Systems Technology, Computer Information Systems and ComputerAided Drafting. Programs vary in length from six months to 20 months. While growing, the institution continues to excel. New accreditation requirements were implemented in Fall 2011 which call for each program at the school’s seven locations to individually meet a 60% completion rate, a 70% placement rate and a 70% licensure rate if applicable to that program. All on-ground programs met the heightened accreditation thresholds. Over the past few years, with ever-increasing accountability scrutiny, TTC Dickson and her sister schools across Tennessee have been touted as top-notch examples of postsecondary educational institutions that consistently have high completion and placement rates in high skill and relatively high wage employment. Early in 2001, Complete College America released its report on the technology centers and “how they are able to achieve completion rates far higher than their counterparts among community colleges in Tennessee and around the nation.” In reviewing national data submitted to the

U.S. Department of Education, Complete College America found that of 1,145 two-year, public postsecondary institutions in U.S., “only 105 (about 9 percent) can report an average ‘150 percent of time’ graduation rate above 50% for the last five years. All twenty-seven Technology Centers are included in that group; during those five years the Technology Centers averaged above 70% completion. There is no other state postsecondary system that comes anywhere close to achieving these outcomes.” TTC students can qualify for all types of financial aid except student loans. The two major programs are the federal Pell grant and the state lottery scholarship the Wilder-Naifeh Technical Skills Grant. The grant covers 66 percent of the tuition - $667 of the $992 each term for full-time enrollment. High school students are allowed to dual enroll at the TTC and begin building postsecondary credits. They are in class alongside adult, full-time students. Also, a class may contain employees from a local industry learning skills to stay current with technology or to qualify for a promotion. Some of those industry students may attend evening programs and learn alongside a hobbyist wanting to learn welding skills or how to maintain their home heating and air-conditioning unit. TTC Dickson offers certificates and diplomas. In those job fields that require professional certifications before employment, the program prepares students for the qualifying exams. Students must be 18 years old or possess a high school or GED diploma to enroll in the day programs.

175 St. Patrick Street McEwen, TN 37101 931-582-3493 Who we are:

St. Patrick’s School is a small, Catholic school in a rural community. Though times have changed, the legacy of faith, hard work, and dedication have always been, and still are, a part of St. Patrick School as found in parents, parishioners, pastor, and teachers. Because we are small, students all know each other and relate as a large family. • Opened in 1856 • Oldest school in the Diocese of Nashville • Dominican Sisters from Nashville help to staff St. Patrick School.

Academics

Every year we have 7th graders qualified for the Duke University Talent Identification Program search, which allows them to take the ACT or SAT early. Participation is based on standardized test scores. The school consistently produces students with superior academic credentials. Courses include Religion, English, reading, math, science, social studies, music, art, PE, band, computer and library. Students progress at their own pace, thus many 8th graders take HS level courses

Extra-curricular

Basketball, cross-country, chess club, 4-H, plays, concerts and public service projects are offered. Future plans include soccer and baseball/softball teams.

Philosophy of tuition

TN 0000787244 TN-0000787244

the community, and; » Provide scholarships and other educational opportunities for students interested in the arts. Working toward these goals, CAD has also organized themed “celebrity” art auctions, coordinated public art projects, awarded scholarships and presented grants for arts programs at Dickson County elementary schools.

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FOR DICKSON COUNTY The Community Foundation for Dickson County, in its12th year of service, continues to provide a way for Dickson Countians to make gifts for the improvement and benefit of the community’s future generations – and all gifts are tax-deductible. CFDC is the product of the Leadership of Dickson County Alumni Association and a group of local citizens. 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 the stability, investment expertise and legal work necessary for the endowment to succeed, according to the group’s members. Dickson County citizens identified three major areas in which to concentrate foundation efforts: educational opportunities for citizens of all ages, leadership and citizenship initiatives, and programs that will improve the quality of life. They included in quality of life such things as the arts, the environment, programs supporting services that meet the needs of the young and the elderly, and preservation of historical places in the county. Each year CFDC make grants to local 501(c)3 agencies and public institutions to provide funds for activities in these areas. The Community Foundation for Dickson County awards the grants in the fall. Last year, nine grants totaling over $31,500 were awarded to agencies and institutions in Dickson County. Since CFDC began making grants in 2002, a total of over $251,500 has been distributed to local groups. The grants from last year will impact the lives of Dickson County children, students, adults and senior citizens. The CFDC endowment is like a savings account for the community – the principal

The Community Foundation for Dickson County holds a golfing event annually at GreyStone Golf Club in Dickson. 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 the endowment from the $100,000 it is today 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. 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. Memorials to CFDC honoring a loved one or friend are another way to donate. These create a living legacy that will perpetually honor someone’s memory through the foundation. For more information, contact Dana Ramsey at (615) 446-3302 or any board member.
