On Feb. 7, 1842, the Justices of Smith and Sumner Counties met at the home of William Dunn, located in this vicinity, for the purpose of forming a new county. Along with Dunn were Taylor Gillam, John Clairborne, James Patterson, L.D. Hargas, Thomas Dotson, Patric Ferguson, and Edward Bradley.

Elections were held in March 1842 to elect officials for the new county named after Nathaniel Macon.

Macon County has always been and still is one of the most progressive counties in the Upper Cumberland region.
