Maury County’s population has grown by more than one fourth during the past decade and now numbers at least 80,956. This growth has greatly taxed the county’s infra-structure, i. e. schools, roads, police and fire services, water and sewer lines, etc. These have had to be expanded in order to keep up with the new growth and will, without a doubt, continue to do so during the years ahead.
The county was formed in 1807 from Williamson County and Indian lands. Maury County was named in honor of Major Abram Poindexter Maury of Williamson County, who was a member of the Tennessee legislature, and an uncle of Commodore Matthew Fontaine Maury.
