Maynardville is a city in and the county seat of Union County, Tennessee, United States. Its population was 1,782 at the 2000 census and 2,413 at the 2010 census. It is included in the Knoxville, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area.Maynardville was the birthplace of country music singers Roy Acuff and Carl Smith.HistoryWhat is now Maynardville began in the early 19th century as a small community known as Liberty. When Union County was created in the 1850s, Liberty, being nearest the center of the county, was chosen as the county seat. The land for the courthouse square was donated by Marcus Monroe (1793–1870), a local minister.Shortly after the Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation authorizing the creation of Union County, Knox County secured an injunction blocking the creation of the new county, which would take some of its area from Knox County. To defend the new county, its supporters retained the services of Horace Maynard (1814–1882), a Knoxville-area attorney and later U.S. Postmaster General. After Maynard successfully defended the new county in litigation proceedings, Liberty was renamed "Maynardville" in his honor. Union County was formally recognized in 1856.
