Dyersburg is a town that is well connected. The town is located in northwest Tennessee, 100 miles from the geographic center of the U.S. Dyersburg is connected to the world by highways, a major rail line, air facilities and, most significantly, the Mississippi River. The bridge at Dyersburg is the only one across the Mississippi between Memphis and Cairo, Illinois. And the town stands equidistant from Chicago and New Orleans.
