on the left will keep you specifically in or near Savannah and Hardin County, Tennessee. We add new listings and links on a regular basis so bookmark this page and check back often.
Hardin County is located on the southern border of Tennessee where Mississippi and Alabama meet. Savannah is the county seat. The Tennessee River bisects the county from south to north. It is one of only a few rivers in the United States that flows north.
Savannah is known as "Catfish Capital of the World" because of the large size of the catfish caught in the river. An annual festival, The National Catfish Derby, is held each summer. Hardin County has been a favorite fishing and boating destination for decades because of its location on the Tennessee River and Pickwick Lake.
Two Trail of Tears routes came through Savannah, one by land and one by water. Hardin County was also the site of the 1862 Battle of Shiloh (also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing) during the Civil War. The battleground is several miles south of Savannah, and extends into Tishomingo County, Mississippi.
