Clinton, TN Contractors

History

The settlement now known as Clinton was founded in 1801. Initially known as Burrville, it was named after Aaron Burr, Thomas Jefferson’s vice president. Chosen as the county seat for the newly created Anderson County, the name Burrville fell into disfavor after Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel. In 1809, the state legislature renamed the settlement Clinton. Although there is no definitive proof, most historians believe the new name honors George Clinton, who succeeded Burr as vice president for Jefferson’s second term as president, rather than DeWitt Clinton, George Clinton’s nephew and mayor of New York City.
