Allan Gipson, a pioneer settler of Franklin County (1814), was a merchant, planter, and original benefactor to the University of the South. He dedicated a large tract to the Sewanee domain. Gipson served as a private in the Tennessee Mounted Infantry during the Indian removal. His son Andrew lived here at Gipson's Switch, farming, mining, and servicing the coal trains. Gipson's Switch is where the University of the South trustees detrained in 1857. (Marker Number 2E 66.)
