Henry County was established in 1821 and named after Revolutionary War patriot and statesman, Patrick Henry. The county seat is Paris, where the “World’s Biggest Fish Fry” takes place each year in April. During the Civil War, Henry County sent more than 2,500 volunteers to the Confederacy and earned the title “Volunteer County of the Volunteer State.” The county is also home to Kentucky Lake, the largest man-made lake in the United States and the second largest in the world. Today, the lake serves as a popular recreation destination for many tourists. For more information regarding Henry County, please go to the Tennessee Encyclopedia of History & Culture website.
