The City of Maryville was established on July 11, 1795, by an act of the General Assembly of the Territory South of the Ohio River. Seven commissioners were appointed and were to obtain fifty acres of land. These fifty acres were to be divided into lots and sold, with the proceeds to be used for construction of a courthouse and jail. One reason for locating the town in this particular area was the abundance of springs for a water supply. Located in Blount County, Maryville was named in honor of Mary Grainger Blount, wife of Governor William Blount. The county was named in honor of Governor Blount.
