Welcome from City Mayor Jimmy Dean Caldwell

On behalf of all the citizens of the City of Elkton and our community at large, I thank you for choosing to visit our town through our website.  Whether you are looking for a home for your business, are a prospective client, are performing historical research or just good ‘home folks,’ it is my desire that you find all the information that you need on this site.

Located on the banks of the Elk River and nestled in the lush green hills of Middle Tennessee, Elkton has something to offer to everyone ranging from nature lovers, hunters, farmers, to investment adventurists industrial tycoons and all in between. The 1808 settlers in our area saw the beauty and business potential for this area when they established the town.  We are on three National Historic Trails.  Please visit our History Page for more information.

The City of Elkton is strategically located on US 31 Highway and Interstate I-65; Exit 6 is in our city limits.  The topography at Exit 6 is excellent for commercial development, as well as the general area of the whole city.  We have a great Industrial Park; 28 acres adjacent to Interstate I-65 with great visibility and easy access.  This is a perfect site for manufacturing or distribution operations. We are within 30 miles of Huntsville, AL  International Airport, and International Port Facility.

We are home to many small businesses and welcome new entrepreneurs.  Several buildings are available and are ‘move-in ready.’  Please visit our page on Available Property.

We are fortunate to be located near two large metropolitan areas, Nashville, TN, and Huntsville, AL in order to take advantage of numerous cultural events and activities such as Broadway Plays, Symphony Concerts, Art Museums, etc.  Nashville is home to the Tennessee Titans and various Major League and College sporting events. Huntsville has Minor League Teams that are within a 30-minute drive.

We are proud to be the home of Elkton’s Premier Pre K-8th Grade Elementary School; the students then transfer to the Giles County High School in Pulaski.  We have a 4-year Liberal Arts College and a Technical College within 15 miles and are in the service area of 3 major universities and 4 community colleges.

Again, let me thank you for your interest in our city and I hope to see you soon when you visit.  If I can be of any assistance please contact me at cityofelkton@elktontn.com or stop by the office at 168 Main Street (next door to the Post Office).  Our office hours are Monday – Thursday, 8:00 – 4:30; Closed for lunch 12:00-12:30 & closed on Friday.
