Brentwood, Tennessee, is an upscale suburb of Nashville that is now home to about 40,000 residents. In 2000, the population was just 23,000. This Williamson County community is known to have one of the highest per capita incomes in the country relative to the cost of living.
Mound Indians and inhabited the area in prehistoric times. Artifacts of early villages and ceremonial mounds have been found in the Meadowlake subdivision and at Primm Historic Park. These early residents seemingly disappeared by the 13th century.
In the 1700s, nomadic Indians from the south came here to hunt. By the late 1700s, limited settlement by those of European descent had occurred. Some received land grants in lieu of payment for their service during the War for Independence. After the Civil War, tobacco became the primary crop in the region. Later, horse farms proliferated in the area.
