The town was founded as Gray Station, Tennessee because of a train rail running through the town. The Gray area was only rural farms until the 1990s. Some suburban areas began to take shape. The Gray area has rapidly grown each year starting in 200 because of the addition of new chain restaurants and a museum known as the Gray Fossil Site.
