Gibson County was established in 1823 and named in honor of Colonel John H. Gibson, who served under Andrew Jackson in the Natchez campaign, the Creek Wars, and the New Orleans campaign. The county seat is Trenton, and it is the home of the world’s largest collection of Veilleuse-Thieres porcelain pieces. The county is also home to the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival that has been held in Humboldt since 1934. In addition, Gibson County has the restored last Tennessee home of Davy Crockett, who lived in the county when he announced his candidacy for his term in the U. S. House of Representatives.
