Roane County, Tennessee


A County Within The TNGenWeb Project


Welcome to Roane County. Created by an act in 1801, the county is located in the Tennessee Valley, at the foothills of the Cumberland Plateau. The county seat of Kingston also served as the capital of Tennessee for one day back in 1807. The land that is now Roane County was opened up to westward expansion by such forts as Fort Southwest Point in 1790 at Kingston. This brought the first settlers to the area in 1794.
