A Brief History
The County of Robertson was named in honor of General James Robertson, who founded the Cumberland Settlements. It is the home of 10 incorporated cities and is bordered by interstate 24, which runs through western Robertson County and interstate 65, which runs north to south through the eastern section of the county.
On April 20, 1796, Springfield was established as the seat of justice in Robertson County. The courthouse houses offices of the County Mayor, Circuit Court Clerk, Clerk and Master as well as other offices. The County is 477 square miles and is governed by an elected 24-member County Commission.
According to the 2000 Census, the county’s population was 54,433 and continues to grow in diversity. Officials in Springfield recently renovated the town square and are working to complete all phases of renovations.
