History Algood was first settled in 1820 and was incorporated in 1901. Until rails reached the area around 1891, Algood was farmland - much of it owned by Joel Algood, and known as “Algood Oldfields.” The Nashville and Knoxville Railroad bought land from him for a depot and called it “Algood,” thus naming the community that grew up around the station.
