Lake County was established in 1870 and it was named for Reelfoot Lake, that was formed by a series of earthquakes from 1811-1812. Tiptonville is the county seat. The county’s economy is based on agriculture with cotton and soybeans as the chief crops. In addition to agriculture, the Illinois Central Railroad has played an important role in the county by serving as a transportation route for passengers and freight.
