Our Chapter History
The Old Reynoldsburgh Chapter was organized in Waverly, Tennessee, on February 1, 1971, with twenty-four organizing and charter members. Mrs. Howard Foster was the organizing regent. The chapter was named in honor of the first Court House serving Humphreys and Benton counties.
Reynoldsburgh was a seat of government for both sides of the Tennessee River. The tract of land on which Old Johnsonville and Reynoldsburgh were located was issued to Captain John F. Brevard in a land grant from North Carolina in 1786. The Old Indian Trace, later called the Old Stage Road, crossed from Middle Tennessee into the Western District of Tennessee at this place, thus giving Trace Creek its name. Trace Creek heads northeast of McEwen and follows the Old Stage Road to Old Johnsonville and to the river crossing. It was at this crossroad that the first Court House was built.
On October 7, 1812, John R. Brevard deeded to the county 52 1/2 acres of land facing the Tennessee River for the county seat which was to be called Reynoldsburgh, in honor of his father.
The Old Reynoldsburgh Chapter meets on the fourth Monday of the month from September to May.
