Goodlettsville, Tennessee is in both Davidson and Sumner counties. The city was named after A.G. Goodlett, a local pastor in the mid-1800s. The town’s early history was rooted in the explorations of longhunters during the 1700s. These explorer-hunters would spend months exploring new wilderness areas. A trading outpost was established, and early settlers had to be resourceful to endure the harsh winters and hostile environment. But a strong faith helped the community grow, and the Mansker Station trading post became the town of Goodlettsville. The town was first incorporated in 1858, and then again in 1958. Goodlettsville opted to remain autonomous when Nashville merged with the Davidson County government in 1963. Today some 17,000 people call Goodlettsville home.
