Founded in 1802, Gallatin is a farm-community-turned-suburb nestled against Old Hickory Lake in the Cumberland River Valley. Subdivisions now bloom where crops once grew, ringing an old town square dignified by stately brick buildings and a regal county courthouse. Several national companies have facilities or headquarters in Gallatin, including Gap, Inc., RR Donnelley, Beretta and Servpro Industries, Inc. The city is also home to Volunteer State Community College, a two-year college with more than 70 degree programs. The town was named after Albert Gallatin, Secretary of Treasury to presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
