Welcome to Haywood County, Tennessee.

Well-known for our cotton production and Tomcat sports teams, Haywood County is located in West Tennessee. A little more than 20 miles of I-40 runs through the county (Exits 42 to 66). And we are home to the Memphis Megasite.

Brownsville is the county seat. Stanton is the county’s other incorporated town. You’ll find lots of friendly smaller communities ranging from Wellwood and Holly Grove to Nutbush. That’s right – the Nutbush made famous by Tina Turner. Tina grew up in Haywood County!

Memphis is less than an hour down the road and Jackson is just half an hour away.

Newcomers find less traffic, beautiful countryside and affordable living here.

Our community is home to a wide variety of business and industry. One of our industrial parks is fully occupied and a new industrial park is being developed for future growth.

In addition to I-40, we are well positioned with robust access to rail.

And, oh, about the cotton. We raise more cotton in Haywood than any other county in Tennessee. You’ll find healthy crops of soybeans, corn and wheat here, too!

Finally, few counties anywhere in the country can claim a Class I Scenic River. That’s technical jargon for the world’s most pristine waterway. The Hatchie River is a prized asset for our citizens and visitors.
