Maury County

Maury County is in south central Middle Tennessee. The county is named for Abram Maury, Sr. a Middle TN politician and was established in 1807. The county seat is Columbia, and the main towns are Columbia, Santa Fe, Spring Hill, among others. In the 1920s, the Columbia area was wealthy enough to think it could be considered for the state capital. 

Maury Co. and Columbia are famed for hosting Mule Day. A tradition that started in the 1840s and was made official as "Mule Day" in 1934 - it has grown to festivities and a parade in Columbia.
