Perry County was founded in 1819. It was named in honor of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. He served in the naval war with Tripoli. In 1809, be built and commanded a fleet of gunboats. While commanding his fleet in battle in 1813, he sent the famous message of
"We have met the enemy and they are ours."

The Perry County Courthouse is a historic courthouse building located at Linden, Tennessee. It was built in 1928, having replaced an earlier courthouse that was destroyed by fire.
The first courthouse was a log cabin, built circa 1845, after Decatur County was split off from Perry County and Linden became the county seat. That log courthouse was replaced in 1849-50 by a new two-story wood-frame building. The second courthouse was burned down by Union Army soldiers on May 12, 1863.
