Lewis County was established in 1843 and it is named in honor of Meriwether Lewis, the famed explorer of the Lewis and Clark expedition, who died within the county’s boundaries. The county seat is Hohenwald, a Swiss name meaning “High Forest” that was named by Swiss settlers in the 1880s. One of the most notable events in the county’s history was when a local mob attacked a group of Mormon missionaries and their followers on August 10, 1884. Today, the Natchez Trace Parkway and the Meriwether Lewis National Monument serve as tourist attractions for the county.
