Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Dade County is a serene fertile valley, located between historic Lookout Mountain and stately Sand Mountain.  The county borders both Tennessee and Alabama.  Trenton, the county seat, is located approximately 25 minutes from downtown Chattanooga and other metropolitan cities – Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville and Knoxville are all only 2 to 3 hours away.
