Trenton has a more rural feel than many other West Tennessee areas. Larger land parcels and working farms dot the countryside. Homeowners trade drive time for amenities and room to roam. Trenton has retained its charm, witnessing the least amount of new development compared to surrounding areas.

Key Features

Historic Sights: From antebellum homes and battlefields to a classic court square, Trenton is rich in history. Be sure to drive slowly on your tour, as the speed limit is 31 miles per hour in many places. (Yes, 31 miles per hour!)

Friendly Faces: Looking for a classic small town? Trenton’s population is approximately 4,300 people, and you’ll likely see a friend and neighbor when out and about in town.
