David Crockett, pioneer, soldier, politician, and industrialist, was born near the little town of Limestone in northeast Tennessee in 1786. In 1817, he moved to Lawrence County and served as a justice of the peace, a colonel of the militia and as a state representative. Along the bank of Shoal Creek, in what is now his namesake park, he established a diversified industry consisting of a powdermill, a gristmill, and a distillery. All three operations were washed away in a flood September, 1821. Financial difficulties from this loss caused Crockett to move to West Tennessee where he was elected to Congress. While in Washington, he fought for his people's right to keep land they had settled on the new frontier of West Tennessee. Crockett died at the Alamo Mission in March of 1836 while aiding the Texans in their fight for independence from Mexico.

Dedicated in May, 1959, in honor of one of Tennessee's most famous native sons, David Crockett State Park is located on US Highway 64 in Lawrence County, one-half mile west of the city of Lawrenceburg.
