|Van Buren County|
|This Beautiful Tennessee County
was established January 3, 1840 from the lands of Bledsoe, Warren and White counties, and is located in Middle Tennessee. The county is named for President Martin Van Buren, 1782-1862, eighth president of the United States of America, 1837-1841. Spencer, the county seat, is named for Thomas Sharp Spencer, one of the early long hunters who probably scouted in the area of present Van Buren County. Spencer is about sixty-five miles from the geographical center of the great state of Tennessee.
|Although there are no multi-million dollar corporations pouring dollars into our community nor determining the destiny of Van Buren County, we have survived. It's true, you won't find a Starbucks on our corners because we support local business development and growth through sustainable living. However, we have an abundance of natural resources, family, community, volunteer programs & that's priceless! We also speak to our neighbors, eat food grown on our land, pull together when a crisis happens and still believe in the amazing power of GO(o)D!|
