History

Loudon County was formed on May 27, 1870 from portions of Roane, Monroe and Blount Counties. Originally, it was named Christiana County, but a few days later the name was changed to Loudon in honor of nearby colonial Fort Loudoun. The fort was named for John Campbell who was the 4th Earl of Loudoun and a commander of the all British forces during the French and Indian Wars. Several earlier attempts to form this county failed due to the difficulty in satisfying the general provisions of Tennessee’s old constitution. The act to establish this county was first act ever approved by a governor of Tennessee. Governor D. W. C. Senter signed this act into legislation on June 2, 1870, and Loudon County was born.

In August 1870, the county officers were chosen. On September 5, 1870, the county court was organized at the Baptist Church in Loudon. This church became the temporary quarters of the county court until the new building, built by J. W. Clark & Brothers, was finished in 1872.
