Greeneville was founded in 1783 on land centered around the Big Spring. Seceding from North Carolina in 1785 the town was the capital of the State of Franklin until 1788... the smallest and most short-lived state in the history of our nation. In 1789 it returned to North Carolina. Greeneville subsequently became part of Tennessee when it was admitted to the Union in 1796.
