Hanson, Justin Mayor Justin Hanson, Mayor  On behalf of the City of Covington, I want to personally welcome you to our hometown!  Covington is a wonderful place to live, work, play, and raise a family.  Covington is literally the heart of Tipton County.  We’ve been the county seat since 1824 and we’re proud of our rich heritage in helping lead Tipton County.  From our vibrant downtown court square, our expansive industrial parks, to our historic residential areas, our city has much to offer.  We host the world’s oldest BBQ cooking contest, a fall Heritage Day and a Dickens Christmas around historic court square, Music on the Square in the early summer, and many other family friendly activities.  So, whether you’re here to visit, or if you’re looking to make this your home, we welcome you.

I’m proud to help lead Team Covington, and I’m happy to assist you in any way.

Ralph Cousar, BancorpSouth Ralph Cousar – BancorpSouthWhat does “Quality of Life” in Tipton County/Covington mean to you?It makes me think of the good things in life. It makes me think of Covington and Tipton County. We have a wonderful place to live and a great place to raise a family. We have terrific youth sports, the Ruffin Theater, Glen Springs Lake, the Mississippi River, the Scenic Hatchie River, Cobb Parr Park, Frasier Park and many other local activities and places to visit and have fun.

The Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce is the main ingredient in keeping our Quality of Life what it is. The Chamber works hard to have attractive activities for our residents and visitors. The Chamber coordinates the downtown Heritage Day, two annual golf tournaments, helps with the Music on the Square and most other local activities. We have the Chamber Center on the Square which is a wonderful place to have any kind of meeting, reception, wedding, etc.

If you are not a Chamber member please consider joining and be a part of what is great about our community.
