Hatchettville, a farming community on Farm Road 3236 some nine miles northeast of Sulphur Springs in northeastern Hopkins County, was named for E. L. Hatchet, who opened a store a half mile east of the Independence schoolhouse in 1908. The store later closed, and by the mid-1930s the community had only a few widely scattered farmhouses. In the late 1980s Hatchettville was a dispersed rural community.
