Greene County is rooted in the "Nolichucky settlement", which was established by pioneer Jacob Brown on land leased from the Cherokee in the early 1770s. The Nolichucky settlement aligned itself with the Watauga settlement, centered in modern Elizabethton. John Crockett, father of Davy Crockett settled in the county near Limestone, and Davy was born there in 1786. The area was then part of the extra-legal state, Franklin.
Greeneville is the home and burial place of the 17th president - Andrew Johnson and it was the capital of The Lost State of Franklin. The County is also the home of the oldest college in Tennessee (Tusculum College), Tennessee's oldest Methodist congregation (the Ebenezer Methodist Church, near Chuckey), and Tennessee's second oldest continuously cultivated farm (Elmwood Farm, part of the Earnest Farms Historic District). The county is named for Major General Nathanael Greene (1742-1786), a major general in the Continental Army from Rhode Island.
