Crockett County was formed out of Dyer, Gibson, Haywood, and Madison counties and officially established in 1871. The county was named for the famous Tennessean Davy Crockett and the county seat was named Alamo after the historic mission in San Antonio, Texas. Throughout its history, cotton production has been a significant agricultural product for the county and its economy. Like many Tennessee counties, the railroad industry has played an important role in the county by creating train traffic that encouraged the creation of cotton gins at towns along the line and provided services for hauling fruits that were grown in the county.
