I would like to personally welcome you to Henderson County, Tennessee were we believe in treating our guest like family! Whether you live here, work here, or just come to visit and enjoy the many activities our great County has to offer, we consider ourselves blessed to call you part of our family, and we strive to serve you with that in mind.
Henderson County covers 526 square miles of beautiful West Tennessee and was founded in 1821 and named after James Henderson, a solider in The War of 1812. We are nestled just off Interstate 40 halfway between Memphis and Nashville, making us an ideal place to live, work, and raise a family. Henderson County is home to the cities of Lexington, Parkers Crossroads, Scotts Hill and Sardis; each one offering second to none services and diverse enrichment opportunities for our residents and visitors.
Our county is rich in history and offers some of the best recreational opportunities in our state with our seven lakes and Tennessee's largest state park, Natchez Trace---an outdoorsman's dream come true. Our school systems consistently maintain high performing academics and provide ample opportunities for growth for our future leaders. We have a diverse business community that has seen tremendous growth and truly values the entrepreneurial spirit and innovation. We are very proud of our small-town charm and reasonable cost of living. Most of all, we are proud of our people! They are truly the reason Henderson County has been fortunate to celebrate many successes throughout our history and why that success will be sustained for generations to come.
