103 Webb Rd W, Bell Buckle, TN 37020
A charming, small town an hour from Nashville.
A little town with big time charm.
I love exploring small, charming Tennessee towns with my girls. Recently, we headed to Bell Buckle, which about an hour's drive from Nashville. The town was founded in 1852 as a railroad village and maintains that charming, old small-town feel. We loved that you could see the old caboose in the town square near the post office. The “downtown” of the village is only a couple of streets with precious, colorful boutiques, antique shops, and cafes.
Drive around and you’ll see several well-preserved Victorian homes as well as The Webb School, a well-known boarding school.
The town hosts two yearly festivals: the RC Cola & Moon Pie Festival. We can’t wait to check those out sometime.
Things to look out for:
- Free little library to the right and back of the ‘main drag.’
- Public bathrooms to the right and back of the ‘main drag.’
- Ice cream shop on the end of the strip with the public bathrooms (there are cute bistro tables/chairs out front).
- Trellised swinging benches across from the ‘main drag.’
- The red caboose near the post office.
- The view on your way back to Nashville is pretty magical across the surrounding farmlands.
