Decherd TN Community Information

Conveniently located in Franklin County, the town has less than 2,300 people who call this place their home. In 1831, Peter Decherd entered the area to set up his own plantation. During the 1850s, he was provided with a right-of-way from the railroad. In 1868, the town officially gained incorporation to avoid the application of a law that allowed you to sell liquor within a four-mile radius of schools that are found in incorporated towns. The town has continued to grow and flourish as the years progressed, which is what made the town into what it is today.
