Hickman County is the eighth largest county in the state and contains 612 square miles. Its county seat is Centerville. There are more springs and scenic waterfalls in Hickman County than any other county in Middle Tennessee. A number of sulphur water springs were commercially developed as nineteenth century recreational sites, including Bon Aqua Springs, Primm Springs, and Beaverdam Springs. These health resorts include hotels, individual cottages, and recreation facilities. Bon Aqua Springs was known as the Queen of the southern spas. Neither Bon Aqua nor Primm Springs is still active, but Beavedam Springs is operated as a church camp by the Presbyterian Church as Na-Co-Me.
Two native Hickman County women gained national fame: Beth Slater Whitson and Sara Ophelia Colley Cannon. Whitson wrote several hundred songs, including "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" and "Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland." Cannon gained world acclaim as Minnie Pearl on the Grand Ole Opry and the television show Hee Haw.
