Settled in the late 1760’s, Carter County’s historic notability is among the most fascinating in the state. The City of Elizabethton is home to both the oldest building in the state of Tennessee, the Carter Mansion, and one of the first written constitutional governments west of the Appalachian Mountains, located at Sycamore Shoals State Park.
