    THE HISTORY862

    Between 1778 and 1812 waves of citizens of the new American began exploring west and settling into the country’s middle lands.   In 1780 a young man named Edward Swanson was the first to claim land in what is now Thompson’s Station. Officially settled in 1799 the town was first named White House and in 1836 was changed to Littlebury in honor of the town’s postmaster, Littleberry Starks. In 1855, following the arrival of the railroad, the town was renamed a final time–in tribute to Dr. Elijah Thompson, who donated the bulk of its current 14.7 square miles and built the train station.

    Near the post office you’ll see a historic marker, noting the area is the site of what became known as The Battle of Thompson’s Station, fought on March 5, 1863 during the height of the Civil War. On that date General Van Dorn defeated the Union
    army led by Colonel John Coburn who was captured along with 1,200 of his soldiers. Assisting Dorn was Confederate General
    Nathan Bedford Forest who atop his famous horse, Roderick, led a charging brigade that divided the Union troops.  The warrior horse was felled during the battle and was buried by the General there in Thompson Station. On the anniversary of the battle in 2008, the town dedicated a monument to Roderick.

    As Nashville and middle Tennessee grew in popularity and population, it’s not surprising that the charming hamlet of Thompson’s Station was discovered. Seeking to protect itself from unwanted annexation and to preserve its heritage and identity for future generations, in 1990 the community overwhelmingly voted to pass an incorporation referendum. And on August 15th of that year the Town of Thompson’s Station was given its official status. A new train depot was built in 1996, replacing the original depot which was torn down in the 1950’s as rails nationwide were yielding to the highways as the preferred mode of personal and commercial transportation. The new depot serves as the Town Hall and a vintage bright red locomotive is stationed nearby as a monument to Thompson’s Station’s history and its relationship to the railroad. On many a quiet evening you can hear a soothing train whistle in the distance.

     

    THE TOWN’S GOVERNMENT

    Thompson Station is governed by five elected officials—a mayor and four aldermen. A significant part of their duties, along with the Planning Commission, is to determine the best ways to allow for a progressive Thompson’s Station to grow while also preserving its beauty and unique character.
