The peaceful and rustic town of Trenton offers a host of options for those looking to relocate to a place with rich local history and scenic views galore. The city offers options for single-family homes, as well as new construction and acreage for farms.

The city of Trenton is known for its Civil War history. Enjoy the self-guided tour by starting at the Gibson County Courthouse, an 1820s landmark, and follow the signage from there.  One unique aspect of the city is the Female Collegiate Institute, which was established in 1852 and was later used during the Civil War as a hospital.

Another Dade County staple is the Lookout Mountain Flight Park, the nation’s premiere flight school and largest training facility for those looking to learn the art of hang gliding.  If you time it right, you can observe the hang gliders as they make their descent and fly thousands of feet above the valley below. Make a day of it and take time to explore some of the local mom and pop shops in the city. One thing you don’t want to miss is the Trenton Teapot Museum, which holds a collection of more than 500 exquisite porcelain nightlight teapots from Asia, Europe and Africa dating from 1750 to 1860. The collection was donated by Dr. Fredrick C. Freed and is known as the world’s largest collection of porcelain Veilleuses-Theieres.

Learn more about the city at Dade County Days, Trenton’s annual festival event held each May which features food, crafts and entertainment. You can also visit in late April or early May for the annual Trenton Teapot Festival, a week-long event featuring luncheons, pet parade, block party, flower show, carnival, tractor pull and fireworks.
