By the end of the 1700’s, the first settlers began arriving in the Brentwood area. The population grew and by 1860, Brentwood had officially been founded. Brentwood quickly blossomed into a prosperous city. By the Civil War, Brentwood was blessed to be one of the richest and most prosperous areas in the state of Tennessee. However, by the end of the Civil War, Brentwood was left in financial and physical ruins. For the next 60 years, Brentwood continued to rebuild and regain its status with many of the devastated plantations being restored. By the 1960’s new interstates brought life back to Brentwood through increased activity and a growing population. Today, Brentwood continues to grow and prosper, bringing hope and success to both Williamson County and the state of Tennessee.
