Clay County
Clay County was formed in 1870 by combining pieces from surrounding Jackson and Overton counties.
It was named after American Statesman Henry Clay.

The county seat and only incorporated city is Celina, which is located at the junction of the Obey and Cumberland rivers, and was a major port during the steamboat years between Nashville and Burnside, Kentucky.
