History

The Sumner County jail in Gallatin, Tennessee has had an interesting past and it has had a couple of bumps even into the present day. The first jail was built with the courthouse in 1803 after the city was set permanently as the county seat in 1802. The residents were not known for committing a lot of crimes in the early days, as the area was settled by large land owners. This is shown by the amount of old plantation homes that are listed by the National Historic Registry.

The county was the site of a push by Union General Eleazar Paine against Confederate General John Hunt Morgan in November 1862. Paine and the Union forces stayed in Sumner County and was well known for his cruelty. The jail was the place for him to hold suspected spies, which he executed as quickly as he could. A 16 year old girl by the name of Alice Williams wrote about what he did in her diary, which has given the best accounts of his actions. The executions and other actions led to Paine being replaced before the end of the war.

A more recent event of note in Sumner County happened September of 2015. James Richard McCutchen was being taken to the jail when he was able to get the patrol car, ram it into the security gate, and grab the police shotgun to take several people hostage. The situation ended when a visitor to the jail tackled McCutchen and he was able to be arrested. No one was hurt, but the officer that brought McCutchen to the jail was fired for not following procedures.
