Trousdale County


The abandoned nuclear plant

County Seat: Hartsville

TrousdaleCounty is home to a nuclear power plant that the Tennessee Valley Authority never finished. You can see the never-operational Hartsville nuclear plant from nearly 20 miles away. And if you can think of a use for it, please tell someone, because the people in TrousdaleCounty have been trying to do something with it for a long time!


Trousdale County is also the answer to a trivia question: With 110 square miles, it is Tennessee's smallest county geographically.

Here's a snapshot of the Trousdale County Courthouse.
