Winchester History

Winchester, Tennessee was designated as the county seat of Franklin County On November 22, 1809, by the Tennessee General Assembly. Winchester was named after General James Winchester of Sumner County, who had been involved in the politics and military actions of the western territory in North Carolina that later became the state of Tennessee.

In 1811 a small brick courthouse was erected on what is now the town square, and on October 20, 1821, the town was incorporated. Notable history is that David Crockett was a local inhabitant and, according to David Crockett’s autobiography, a young Winchester local lawyer named Francis Jones made a fiery speech that prompted David Crockett to volunteer as captain of the local militia mustered at Winchester, Tennessee in 1813.

David Crockett also later represented the district encompassing Winchester, Tennessee in Congress. In its early years, Winchester boasted many lawyers of national importance who began their careers in Winchester, the county seat of Franklin County, such as Felix Grundy, Peter Turney, and Albert S. Marks. Another notable Winchester lawyer was William Venable, who later served as consular representative of the United States to Guatemala.

Winchester native, John Mark Templeton, became a Rhodes Scholar and later gained international prominence in business and investing. Mr. Templeton was the founder of the Templeton Mutual Funds. Winchester is also known for its native singing star and actress, Dinah Shore, for which the central thoroughfare from Winchester to Decherd bears her name: “Dinah Shore Boulevard”. Winchester’s population today is in excess of 8,000.
