Hamblen County is located in the northeastern part of the state and is named in honor of Hezekiah Hamblen of Hawkins County. The county was established in 1870 and has its county government based in Morristown. The terrain is heavily mountainous.
The entire western boundary of the county is formed by Cherokee Lake. This huge body of water offers substantial recreational opportunity. Other points of interest in the county include Panther Creek State Park and David Crockett Tavern and Museum in Morristown.
Hamblen County was formed from land that earlier had been part of both Jefferson County and Grainger County.
