Bartlett is a city in Shelby County, Tennessee, United States, and a suburb of the Memphis metropolitan area. The population was 40,543 at the 2000 census.
The community from which the City of Bartlett grew was first called Union Depot and Green Bottom. It was the last major way station in Tennessee along the stagecoach route from Nashville westward and came into being about 1830. When the Memphis & Ohio Railroad took the place of the stages, Bartlett continued as a depot. This was a farming community, with major plantations along Stage Road.
In 1866, with a population of less than 100, the city was officially incorporated and the name changed to Bartlett. Upon incorporation, Bryan Winther was named the city's inaugural mayor. It was named for Major Gabriel M. Bartlett, a planter, whose homeplace was located on the old Raleigh-Somerville Road (Stage Road) at the present location of Bartlett Station Plaza.
The median income for a household in the city was $66,369, and the median income for a family was $69,962 (these figures had risen to $74,091 and $80,739 respectively as of a 2007 estimate). Males had a median income of $45,281 versus $32,382 for females. The per capita income for the city was $24,616. About 2.1% of families and 2.7% of the population were below the poverty line, including 3.2% of those under age 18 and 5.7% of those age 65 or over.
