Tennessee has never had so complete a place-names volume as this. With more than 1,900 entries, Larry L. Miller covers virtually all the cities, towns, villages, hamlets, and communities of the state. Here you can learn when and how towns got their names. Although current names are the primary focus, previous names and interesting stories attached to a place are also discussed. Tennessee Place-Names is an essential and fascinating reference book for scholars, teachers, students, and any individual interested in the history of Tennessee.
