Hampshire is an unincorporated community in Maury County, Tennessee, United States, founded in 1808.[1]

Education[edit]

Hampshire Unit School, enrolling kindergarten through grade 12, is operated as a unit of Maury County Public Schools.[2]

Police protection[edit]

Since Hampshire is unincorporated, no government body represents the town personally to provide a police service. The Maury County Sheriffs Department maintains all law enforcement duties. Constables also have concurrent jurisdiction with the sheriff; however, they rarely exercise such authority.

Fire protection[edit]

Hampshire is protected by the Hampshire Fire Department, an independent division of the Maury County Fire Department, a fully operational volunteer department servicing the entire county.
