ABOUT THE SECTION ABOUT CHEATHAM COUNTY Cheatham County is considered by many as Middle Tennessee’s best-kept secret — a quiet county of small towns along the Cumberland and Harpeth rivers, unscathed by the rapid development that’s engulfed Nashville and other surrounding areas in recent decades. The county benefits from good access to transportation — it’s bordered to the north by Interstate 24 and to the south by Interstate 40. Highway 12, which runs through downtown Ashland City, provides accessibility to

both Clarksville and Nashville. The county was founded Feb. 28, 1856, when the Tennessee General Assembly designated the 50 acres of land to the west of Nashville and north of the Cumberland River as Cheatham County. It was named after Speaker of the State Senate, Edward Saunders Cheatham. The county is home to four incorporated municipalities — Ashland City, Kingston Springs, Pegram and Pleasant View. Nearly 40,000 people call the county home.

Kingston Springs Kingston Springs is located off Interstate 40 in South Cheatham County. Before the advent of the automobile in the early 1900s, Kingston Springs was a famous resort spot. In the mid-1800s, Kingston Springs had mineral springs that produced white, black and red sulphur water. A large inn or tavern was built in 1819 near the springs to serve those taking advantage of their healing qualities. In 1860, the railroad was extended from Nashville to Kingston Springs, and then in 1862 the railroad was extended from Kingston Springs to Waverly, causing a huge population growth within the community. Kingston Springs was incorporated in 1965. Today, 2,756 people call the town home. The town is headed by mayor Tony Campbell, vice mayor Gary Corlew and commissioners Tony Gross, Glenn Remick and Bob Stohler. A full-time manager, Laurie Cooper, oversees the town’s daily operations.

Cast members from the Cheatham County Community Theatre’s production of “A Dickens of a Christmas” entertained the spirited crowd at the annual Christmas tree lighting in Kingston Springs. The town of Kingston Springs, South Cheatham Public Library and the Friends of the Library host the event in December at the South Cheatham Public Library. RANDY MOOMAW/THE TIMES

The town is governed by a five-member Board of Mayor and Aldermen, made up of mayor Perry Keenan, vice mayor Stephen Carr and aldermen June Nicholson, Danny Rediker and Randell Bracey. Pleasant View was formerly known as Bradley’s Stand and Turnbull Horse Stamp. The mail and telegraph lines ran from Clarksville to Nashville and Pleasant View served as a stagecoach stop and rest area between the two cities. The town was first incorporated in 1921, but unincorporated 10 years later. Residents voted in August 1996 to re-incorporate the town. Pleasant View is hopeful of much to come as Interstate 24 borders the town, bringing prospects of commercial and industrial development growth. More than 4,100 people call the town home.

Whether you enjoy the thrill of fly-fishing or spin casting, the river hosts large and small mouth bass, bream, crappie, bluegill, channel catfish and other game fish. At the Narrows of the Harpeth, three trails originate at a common trailhead near the park entrance. A two-mile bluff overlook trail includes a steep ascent to a narrow bluff offering hikers a panoramic view of the Harpeth Valley. A half-mile trail along the backside of the limestone bluff leads to the site of Montgomery Bell's Pattison Forge where a small waterfall is all that remains of the iron forge operation. In addition, guided tours of Mound Bottom are offered by reservation. Mound Bottom is a 1,000year-old earthenworks left behind by a mighty civilization that once thrived along the Harpeth River.
