Greetings from Lynnville, Tennessee, located on the banks of the Robertson Fork Creek. Robertson Fork gets its name from earlier explorer James Robertson.

The season changed on Friday, September 22, 2017, as the Autumn Season officially arrived. With the warm temperatures, it does not seem like fall is here.

The “Trunk-or-Treat” will again take place on Saturday, October 28 at 5 p.m. on the Lynnville Town Square. All children are asked to dress in their Halloween Costumes and come to Lynnville to Trunk-or-Treat.
