Cowan, Tennessee
Real Estate and Community Information


The first people who settled near what is now the Cowan, included bands of Cherokee, Chickasaw and Creek Indians at least 500 years ago. Many of these people established farms near the Cumberland Plateau and Boiling Fork Creek.

The first American settlers arrived in the area in 1806. They included a group of Scotch-Irish farmers who were led by William Russell. Most of the settlers were attracted to the area's fertile soil and abundant water supplies. Others were attracted to the area's sheltered mountain coves.

Interest in Cowan homes increased during the 1830s after coal was discovered near the Cumberland Mountains. Interest in Cowan real estate for sale also expanded during the second half of the 19th century after railroad service was established near what is now Cowan's downtown area.

Cowan's economy was revitalized during the middle of the 20th century after several popular restaurants and stores were opened near what is now the Cowan Railroad Museum. Most of these attractions were closed during the 1960s after commuter rail service was discontinued in the area.

Many of the Cowan properties that were occupied by these firms were restored during the early 2000s by Cowan residents who wanted to preserve the properties' architectural designs. These efforts paid off when several new firms relocated to Cowan during the late 2000s.

Cowan homes for sale are now located in a small town that offers home buyers a quiet atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and many outdoor recreational activities. These benefits make real estate in Cowan a great value for anyone who relocates to Tennessee.
