From the pages of Lynnville History in 1888...

"Our young folks had their May picnic the past week. Mr. Geo. Witt and lady, and J. N. Boyd and lady chaperoned the affair. They left early Tuesday morning with "twelve baskets full" and a couple for each basket. Destination, Cook Springs. At the Brick Church the sylvan loveliness of the beautiful beech grove of Col. R. H. Laird captured them and they ate up the twelve baskets then and there. They returned declaring that there was nothing so delightful as a picnic at Brick Church."
