Dandridge is Tennessee’s second oldest town. A quaint historic town having preserved much of its historical buildings along with it the charm of days past. Dandridge was named after Martha Dandridge Washington, wife of our first President, George Washington. The first settlers arrived in 1783 and by 1792 Governor William Blount designated the area as the new county of Jefferson. A local landowner, Francis Dean, donated fifty acres for the town of Dandridge to become the county seat.
