It always amazes me what you can find in small towns. We are back in Cornersville, TN staying at Texas “T” Campground again and while we were in Florida I saw a post on their Facebook page about this small town of Lynnville, which is about 7 miles away and knew I had to check it out when we got back. Some of these little old towns can take you back to the old way of life, a time so many people have forgotten and a time I wish I had lived in as an adult.
The town of Lynnville is located off I-65, Exit 27 and has a population of 345. The total area of the town is only 0.3 square miles. For such a small town, it has a lot of character. As we made the drive we saw some beautiful homes, barns and open fields with cows and horses. When you approach town, right in the middle is the town square, which is host to the Lynnville Railroad Museum. The museum is a reproduction of a turn of the century depot. You can read the full story by clicking here which will take you to the Lynnville website, providing a multitude of information about this little town. We strolled along the street across from the depot taking in the 19th century architecture with street lamps and memorabilia from days gone by.
There are several stores along this little strip including a stitching store for quilters, which I have to go back and look through. In addition, there is a family owned restaurant, Soda Pop Junction, which claims to have the best burgers in Tennessee. Unfortunately we had eaten lunch before driving over, so we will have to make another visit to check out these famous burgers. According to their Facebook page, they have a great Sunday buffet that starts serving at 11:00 am.
Hopefully the pictures below will give you a small glimpse into what we saw and give you reason to check this little gem of a town out on your next visit through Tennessee.
