The county was named for the valley in which it is located. The valley was named for the Cherokee Chief, Sequachee, who signed a treaty with the colonial government of South Carolina. Historians who have studied the language and lore of the Cherokee differ over the exact meaning of the word, but the general consensus is “opossum, he grins or runs.”
Sequatchie County is located in the center of the valley. It is bordered on the north by Bledsoe County, east by Hamilton County, south by Marion County, and on the west by Grundy County and Van Buren County.
Dunlap has a mayor-commissioner form of government.
