Pickett County was established in 1879 from parts of Overton and Fentress counties. The county seat is Byrdstown, where the Pickett County Courthouse, designed in Crab Orchard stone by the Nashville firm of Marr and Holman, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In the early years of the county the main industry was logging and rafting, however in more recent years, the county became home to several clothing factories such as OshKosh B’Gosh Children’s Apparel and Dale Hollow Apparel. The county also has two outdoor recreational areas, Dale Hollow Lake and Pickett State Park, which adjoins the Big South Fork National Recreation Area.
