Rogersville is the county seat of Hawkins County, located in northeastern Tennessee. Prior to its creation by North Carolina, the county was Spencer County, State of Franklin.
Hawkins County extends down from the Virginia state line and is divided into two almost equal sections by the Holston River, which traverses the county's entire length. Today Hawkins County has a population of over fifty thousand. Church Hill is the largest city, followed by Rogersville, Mount Carmel, Surgoinsville, and Bulls Gap. The principal sources of farm income are beef cattle and burley tobacco.
Local parks and golf courses provide activities from picnicking and baseball to championship PGA golf. Rogersville hosts an annual three-day festival in October called Heritage Days, and Bulls Gap celebrates Archie Campbell Homecoming Day each Labor Day.
One of the largest counties in the state, the 480 square miles of Hawkins County ranges from relatively flat valleys dotted with farms and pasture land to the high mountain ridges of the Appalachians. It is known for its beautiful mountains, and scenic rivers, lakes, and streams.
