About the Area
Rhea County consists of three major cities: Dayton, Spring City, and Graysville. Our unincorporated communities include Evensville, Frazier, Grandview, and Old Washington.
Rhea County uses the county commission form of local government. Our current county executive is George Thacker. There are nine seats on the county commission, each representing a geographical area of the county. Members of the commission and the county mayor are elected to four-year terms.
The county-administered public school system serves most Rhea County students. The system operates three elementary schools, two middle schools, two K-8 schools, one high school, and one alternative school.
