    --More than half of Cannon County lies in the Central Basin, and the remainderon the Highland Rim. Spurs shoot out from the highlands, forming numerousvalleys, through which course mountain streams, giving the county probably asmuch varied and picturesque scenery as any in the State. The soils on thehighlands are light colored, and are for the most part thin and unproductive,save of a rank, barren grass which affords good summer grazing. Fruits andtobacco will also grow, in the highland soils. The knobs of the Central basinare usually fertile to the top, but limestone crops out in such abundance asto render much of the surface unfit for cultivation. In the basin, however, isfound the valuable farm lands of the county. The soil is rich, loamy andpebbly, easily worked and highly productive. Bluegrass grows spontaneously andluxuriantly on the slopes and tops of the hills, and even in the glades,furnishing rich pasturage. The crops of the county are corn, wheat, hay,clover, tobacco and the grasses, while the timber embraces species of oak,ash, poplar, walnut, hickory, chestnut, gum, maple, beech, buckeye, cherry andelm.Stone River traverses the county from the east to the west, receiving thewaters of numerous tributaries, and is the principal water course of thecounty. Other streams are Rockhouse, Carpenter, Rush, Lock, Hill, Hollis andBrawley Creeks, all emptying into the Stone River, Carson Fork, emptying intoBrawley Creek, and Barren Fork of Collins River, Clear Fork, Sycamore,Hurricane, Saunders and Marshall Creeks.The country now embraced in Cannon County was settled as early as 1807 and1809, though it then belonged to several other counties in part. The earlysettlers were chiefly North Carolinians, who, however, came here from EastTennessee, to which section they had previously immigrated in quest of homes,but pushed on over the mountains as Middle Tennessee opened up for settlement.Among the settlers living here in 1836, when Cannon County was organized, wereHenry D. McBroom, John Wood, James and Edmond Taylor, Wm. Hollis, Noel Lilly,Isham Cherry, Alexander Hill, Phillip Rough, Phillip Hoas, Henry Ford,Benjamin Allen, Usibid Stone, George St. John, Wm.

One of the first schools taught in what is now Cannon County was theone situated about seven miles west of Woodbury, of which James Barklay wasthe teacher.. This school was taught as early as 1810 or 1812. Other Earlyschools of the years between the above school and 1815 were taught by JacobMackeroy, on Hill Creek, one and a half miles east of Woodbury; by BartlettWade, in the same neighborhood, and later in that neighborhood by John Finley.In about 1814 James Rucker opened a school in Woodbury (then Danville), and afew years later Elliot Tunley taught a school in the Methodist meeting-housein town. The next school in Woodbury was taught by Thomas G. Wood. LaurensAcademy was established in Woodbury in 1838 as a county academy, for which aframe building was erected. In 1859 the house was destroyed by a fire, when asubstantial brick was erected, which is now occupied as a private residence.In about 1855 Baptists established a school, which has since become theWoodbury College. The school building is a large two-story brick, and theschool a most excellent one. The other schools of the county besides thecommons schools are those at Short Mountain, Auburn, Bradysville andReaderville, those at Woodbury and Short Mountain being chartered and workingunder the four-mile law.

The first church erected in Woodbury was a log 3house, built about 1820 by the Methodists. This stood until about 1840, whenthe present brick was erected. The next was a frame church erected by theBaptists about 1841, which is still in use, and the next was the ChristianChurch, frame, which was erected about 1842 and is still in use.

The county court in 1836ordered the erection of a courthouse and jail. The former was completed in1838 after the style and plan of the Rutherford County Courthouse, and costabout $13,000. The building is in use at the present and bids fair to doservice for the next fifty years. It is a large, square, two-story brickbuilding and is very conveniently arranged. The jail was also completed in1838, was a brick building, but being too near Stone River it was washed awayin the freshet of 1850. A second brick jail was erected in 1852 which serveduntil 1880, when the present substantial stone building was erected.In 1840 Cannon County had a population of 7,163, of 8,982 in 1850, of 9,509 in1860, of 10,502 in 1870, of 11,200 in 1880 and of about 12,500 in 1886.
