Carroll County History
Carroll County was established in 1842 from Grayson County
The county is named for Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, from Maryland.  
Part of Patrick County was added later.
line
Carrol was formed in 1842, from the southwestern part of Grayson, and named from Charles Carrol of Carrolton. It is a wild and mountainous tract, and is watered by the New River and some of the head-branches of the Holston.
The Grayson Sulphur Springs, formerly in Grayson, are now within the limits of this county. The improvements at this place are quite recent; but since they have been made, it has grown into popular favor, and attracts more visitors than could have been expected from its remote situation.
