Wartrace is located on a 5000-acre North Carolina grant acquired by General Andrew Jackson at an 1802 marshal's sale in Nashville. In 1805, Jackson came to the area to establish his boundaries for the opening of the lands for settlement by the third Treaty of Tellico. In 1806, he returned to survey his property to sell to settlers on Wartrace Creek. The land is part of 85,000 acres on the Three Forks of Duck River granted to John Gray Blount and Thomas Blount in 1793.
