The seat of Tipton County, this town was established in 1824 and chosen by the state legislature because of its location on a large hill with a bountiful spring of water. During the Civil War, the young men of Covington and the surrounding towns formed the “Tipton Rifles,” the first Confederate outfit from the county. Today, it’'s a small West Tennessee town with lots of history and charm.
