Lynchburg, TN

Front Porches, Jack Daniels Distillery,
and Southern Charm

On the road van

Lynchburg TN is best known for it's world famous Jack Daniels Distillery. But, it also could boast about the many southern porches we discovered on our travels.

Jack Daniel's whiskey is marketed worldwide and produced in a town with only one traffic light. What many might not know is that it is located in a 'dry' county; you cannot purchase it there.

Lynchburg trivia also includes residents Davy Crockett and Little Richard at one point in time.

It is unclear as to how the town was named Lynchburg. Theories include being named after Lynchburg Virginia, an early resident named Tom Lynch, or perhaps a judge named Lynch. No matter, it is a picturesque southern town with southern charm.

We were surprised to find two porch designs that are not often seen. The combination gable with two adjoining shed roofs is an interesting design feature.

The shed roofs provide additional protection from the weather and extend the functionality of the porch.

The stone facade on this porch makes a bold statement and clearly defines the entrance.

Creative landscaping adds to the home's charm and gives it a cohesive look. A dry creek bed integrated into the landscaping is ideal for controlling drainage.

Lynchburg TN Southern Charm

A trip to Lynchburg wouldn't be complete without a visit to Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House and Restaurant. Miss Bobo's is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a great location to sit down to a real family style meal served with a good dose of Southern hospitality.

Miss Bobo and her husband purchased the property in 1908 and operated it until she died in 1983 a little before her 102nd birthday. This iconic restaurant is worth a visit.

The Lynchburg Cafe is home to the Whiskey Burger. We didn't try it but we bet it would be quite tasty.

If you haven't tried a Moon Pie, you are in for a real treat. Pair it with an RC Cola and you light up your taste buds!

Moon Pies originated about 1917 in Chattanooga, TN. A traveling salesman happened upon a company store that catered to coal miners and noticed they wanted a snack.

When asked how large it should be, a miner held up his hands to frame the moon and said, "that big". Upon return to his bakery he noticed workers dipping graham crackers into marshmallows.

The idea was born! Today, the Chattanooga Bakery makes about 1 million moon pies a day, we hear.

If you have the time, take a tour of the Lynchburg Jail Museum. It was in operation for about 100 years and is made of heavy oak timber and contains two 8 foot by 8 foot jail cells.
