Map and Directions to Bell Buckle
Bell Buckle, Tennessee (pop. 463) was settled in the late 1700's around a spring that supplied the area's fresh water. It was also a supply of water for the native Americans, and this led to several cultural exchanges. One such encounter resulted in our town's unusual name. In the 1800's the railroad came to Bell Buckle and by the early 1900's it had brought prosperity and Bell Buckle was a boom town. Now Bell Buckle has become a mecca for artisans, craftsmen, antiques, good food and music.
Tennessee's Poet Laureate Maggi Vaughn and three sculptors: Russ Faxon in bronze, Bill Ralston in stone and Sherry Hunter in mosaic all have received state commissions and call Bell Buckle their home.
The Webb School, located in Bell Buckle, is one of the most highly regarded private schools in the country.
