Founded in 1870, Lake County is located in the Northwest corner of Tennessee and has a population of about 7,000. Its county seat is Tiptonville. Agriculture, in particular the farming of cotton and soybeans, has contributed to its overall livelihood, and the area is home to several Tennessee Century farms.

Tourism also fuels its economy, thanks to Reelfoot Lake State Park, Lake Isom National Wildlife Refuge, and the annual Reelfoot Arts and Crafts festival.
