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 Â“Tipton Rifles,Â” the first Confederate outfit from the county. Today, itÂ’'s a small West Tennessee town with lots of history and charm.
