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.
