History

Bass, originally known as Bass Station, was the site of a station along the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway (NC&StL), built in 1853. The name Bass was chosen by Vernon King Stevenson, president of NC&StL, in honor of his wife, whose maiden name was Maria Louisa Bass. A post office was established in 1873, but it was later closed. Louisville and Nashville Railroad gained control of NC&StL in 1880 but continued to operate it independently before finally merging in 1957.
