Long Description:
Most tennesseeans are not familiar with James County. Soon after the civil war, portions of Hamilton County (Chattanooga) and Bradley County (Cleveland) voted to form their own county and named it after Jesse James. (not that Jesse James! A local state senator, Elbert James, wanted it named after his dad.)

Ooltewah, TN was the county seat and this, the third court house was built in 1913.

The county went bankrupt in 1919 and the county was absorbed by Hamilton County.
