TOWNS

Bledsoe County (the oldest and northern most county in the Sequatchie Valley) was created on November 30, 1807, and in 1818, county officials moved the seat of government from Madison to Pikeville where the first court meeting took place in the upper story of Phillip Thurman's log house. In 1908, an earlier nineteenth century courthouse (the second Bledsoe County Courthouse) burned and county officials decided to build a brick replacement.
