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, 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 law 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
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.
