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:

  1. Free little library to the right and back of the ‘main drag.’
  2. Public bathrooms to the right and back of the ‘main drag.’
  3. Ice cream shop on the end of the strip with the public bathrooms (there are cute bistro tables/chairs out front).
  4. Trellised swinging benches across from the ‘main drag.’
  5. The red caboose near the post office.
  6. The view on your way back to Nashville is pretty magical across the surrounding farmlands.
