LaGrange TN


La Grange TN is the place that Franklin Cossitt named LaGrange IL after.  

When Cossitt began his development, the area was served by a post office known as Kensington. When he learned of another community already with that name in Illinois, Cossitt decided to name his town in honor of La Grange, Tennessee, where he had been raised as a youth on an uncle's cotton farm.
