Hamblen County, TN

Crockett Tavern, Boyhood home of Davy Crockett


Hamblen County, Tennessee was created in 1870 from Jefferson, Grainger, and Greene Counties.  The county is named in honor of Hezekiah Hamblen (1775 - 1854), an early settler, landowner, attorney, and member of the Hawkins County Court for many years.  
Hamblen County's strategic location along I-81 near its junction with I-40 has made the county a strong manufacturing and distribution hub for the State of Tennessee.  A number of major companies have chosen the new East Tennessee Progress Center industrial park which has vastly improved access to I-81. Walters State Community College provides customized training programs and is a major asset
to Hamblen County and the region.
Hamblen County has a population of 63,062 and a total area of 176 square miles.
