The county is bounded on the west by the Mississippi River, and it is drained by the Mississippi River. It is in the part of Tennessee called the "Mississippi bottomland".
Dyer County is bisected by U.S. Route 51, the older major highway connecting Memphis with Chicago from south to north. To the west, Dyer County is connected to Missouri by Interstate 155 over the Mississippi River, providing the only highway connection, other than those at Memphis, between Tennessee and the states to the west. Its county seat is Dyersburg.
Dyersburg is the gateway to middle America. Dyersburg is a regional retail, medical, employment and cultural center for more than 300,000 people who live in a tri-state area that includes Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri. History enthusiasts will enjoy a walk through the Historic Courthouse Square, where the Dyer County Courthouse and 45 contributing buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. For Civil War historians a trip to General Strahl's gravesite and cannon is not to be missed, and the covered bridge in Trimble, one of only 3 remaining in the state, is an interesting trip for visitors young and old.
