Hancock County is nestled in Central Appalachia and provides residents and visitors with a beautiful rural atmosphere year-round. The mountains and ridges that make up this county are sights to behold and are full of natural wonders to be discovered. The tranquil Clinch and Powell Rivers take winding courses through the county, creating lush valleys and plenty of opportunities for outdoor entertainment. A peaceful small-town atmosphere offers a haven from the hustle and bustle of contemporary life.

Hancock County is known particularly for its population of people of Melungeon ancestry, who are believed to be of mixed European, African, and Native American heritage. The Vardy Community School, which provided state-mandated education for Melungeon children in the early 20th century, is now a historic site located in the Newman's Ridge area.

Sneedville, the county seat, hosts two major festivals yearly, the Jimmy Martin Memorial Bluegrass festival in May, and the Hancock County Fall Festival in October. The Hancock County Tennessee Historical and Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization located in the Old County Jail. The organization provides access to archival material related to the community, and maintains a small museum displaying aspects of traditional mountain life. They publish a bi-yearly newsletter called Our Mountain Heritage for members of the society.
