Beginnings [1]

The City of Gallatin, Tennessee is a rapidly growing community located approximately 25 miles northeast of Nashville. Gallatin was established in 1802 as the permanent county seat for Sumner County and was surveyed and platted one year later. The first courthouse and jail were built in 1803. The town incorporated in 1815 and now functions under a charter established by a 1953 private act of the state legislature.
