Algood | Tennessee Vacation


Until rails reached the area around 1891, Algood was simply farmland, ”” much of it owned by Joel Algood ”” and known as “"Algood Oldfields."” The Nashville & Knoxville Railroad bought land from him for a depot and called it “Algood.” The rails carried out agricultural products, notably poultry and eggs. So much, in fact, the town once called itself the “"Chicken Capital of the World.”"
