Weakley County


Weakley County was established Oct. 21, 1823, and named for Robert Weakley, then Speaker of the State Senate.  In 1825 John

Terrell gave 39 acres for the county seat.  Martin Lawler, Richard Ridgeway, John R. Shultz, Perry Vincent and Mears Warner,

Commissioners, planned the town of Dreaden named for the German birthplace of Warner's father.  Weakley County was one of

the homes of Davey Crockett.  Present courthouse, built in 1950 is the fourth building to serve that function.
