Welcome to Weakley


Established on October 21, 1823, from land ceded by the Chickasaw Indians, Weakley County was named for Colonel Robert Weakley, then Speaker of the State Senate. Quality of life is unsurpassed with inviting residential atmosphere, educational opportunities, and recreation, all set on a quiet, country landscape. The civic engagement and the sense of pride felt by residents contribute in making Weakley County a leading manufacturing, agricultural, business, and educational county in northwest Tennessee.
