Bell Buckle Reviews

2 reviews
I grew up in Bell Buckle TN, I love it here because it's close knit community. Everyone knows everyone and everyone is always willing to help you if you need it. Bell Buckle is rich in history especially when it comes to Tennessee Walking Horses. Our neighboring town of Shelbyville, about ten minutes away, is the walking horse capital of the world. Bell Buckle hosts the annual RC Cola Moon Pie festival every year as well as the Bell Buckle craft fair. Those are great sources of revenue for the town and bring in over a hundred thousand people apiece every year. Bell Buckle is a great place to raise a family. You can float down Duck river on a hot summer day, or go fishing in Normandy lake. Or simply take a cruise down all the country roads. I don't think there is anything I would change about Bell Buckle TN.

Nice small town. Great boarding school--very diverse with wonderful teachers. Bell Buckle is close to larger cities like Nashville and Murfresboro.
