Hendersonville is located in the state of Tennessee and the largest city in Sumner County on the Old Hickory Lake. In 1784, the area where the present-day Hendersonville stands were settled by Daniel Smith and named it William Henderson, who was the first postmaster of the city. Smith then began to work on his Rock Castle and developed the town to become a trading center for the county, wherein its agriculture industry was devoted to the production of tobacco and hemp as its primary crops and included livestock raising such as cattle and horses. The city was incorporated in 1901 with roughly 250 residents and was led by the L.G. Newman. With the construction and completion of the Old Hickory Dam in 1954, Hendersonville started to develop faster, and the nearby lake has attracted sportspeople and people who are seeking recreation and adventures.
