Henry County Current Events


Early History

Henry County was created in 1821 from Indian lands.  The county was named after the Virginia statesman, patriot and Revolutionary leader, Patrick Henry (1736-1799)

" Recollections of Tennessee," by Memucan Hunt Howard
"The following manuscript was sent to the late G. Tillman Stewart of Henderson County, Tennessee, who was compiling a comprehensive history of Henderson County (never finished). It seems to be a typed transcription of a 90-page handwritten manuscript made in 1883 for ex-governor James D. Porter by Memucan Hunt Howard, then living in New York.  In 1902 the transcription seems to have been a rough copy that was not proofread or corrected."
