History

On September 11, 1806, an act of the Tennessee General Assembly created White County out of Smith County, responding to a petition signed by 155 residents of the area. The origin of the county's name is in dispute, officially and widely held to be named after the first known white settler of the area, John White. However, some historians dispute this claim, and instead suggest that the county was named after Revolutionary War hero General James White, founder of Knoxville. A temporary county seat was established near Rock Island, now in Warren County. Three years later a permanent seat of justice for the county was established on the banks of the Calfkiller River and named Sparta.

In 1840, White County became a destination for people from all over the country when Christopher Haufmann erected a large hotel on Bon Air Mountain, a part of the Cumberland Plateau. The hotel was located near some mineral springs as well as being at a high altitude, both thought to be health-bringing, and those with ailments came from far and wide to partake of the "cures" advertised by the resort. During this time, the Tennessee Supreme Court (including then-Judge Andrew Jackson) often met in Sparta, and the town was even considered by the Legislature as a potential site for the state capital, narrowly missing out to Nashville. 1840 is a leap year starting on Wednesday (link will take you to calendar). ...

The Civil War impacted White County heavily, even though no major battles were fought in the area. Being on the border between the pro-Union East Tennessee and pro-Confederate Middle Tennessee, the county saw its share of bloodshed from partisans (called "bushwhackers") of both sides. One famous Confederate guerilla was Champ Ferguson, who caused much mayhem and destruction before he was arrested on May 28, 1865. During the War, White County provided the Confederacy with 19 companies, and the Federals with one.

Over the following decades, White County slowly rebuilt from the ashes of war. The county was connected to the outside world by railroad, mainly because of the booming coal mining industries being started on Bon Air Mountain. The mountain was rich in bituminous coal, and enterprising local businessmen were quick to realize the profit potential that represented. Several mining towns sprang up on the plateau part of the county, including Bon Air, Eastland, and Ravenscroft. The coal mining industry employed thousands of White County men for decades, but as the 20th century went on, the mines started to close and the people started to move away, and the industry had vanished by the time of World War II.

Local culture

Like many rural areas, White County has developed a few unique cultural features. One prominent feature is the term "yert," the use of which is believed to be solely found in White County residents and former residents. It is used primarily as a form of greeting, but sometimes is used to show elation or as a euphemism for other four letter words. "Yert" is usually accompanied by a motion of the arm that resembles the act of pulling a tractor-trailer horn. The origin of the term is not known. A euphemism is an expression intended by the speaker to be less offensive, disturbing, or troubling to the listener than the word or phrase it replaces, or in the case of doublespeak to make it less troublesome for the speaker. ... semi-trailer truck with sleeper behind the cab. ...
