Cordell Hull Lake is named after one of America's outstanding statesmen, Cordell Hull. Cordell Hull was born in a log cabin in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains.

Hull served in the Tennessee and U.S. House of Representatives and in the U.S. Senate. He served as Secretary of State under President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933 to 1944 and negotiated the "Good Neighbor" policy toward Latin America. He was largely responsible for the creation of the United Nations. For his efforts towards promoting world peace and harmony, he was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1945.

In recognition of his contributions to the people of the United States and the world, the Congress of the United States named this lake in honor of one of Tennessee's finest.
