Greetings from Lynnville, Tennessee located on the banks of Robertson Fork Creek. Hope everyone is enjoying the nice fall weather.

The Town Square of Lynnville is beautifully decorated for the fall season with hay, pumpkins, chrysanthemuns, and other fall decorations. We thank everyone who decorated the town.

The American Flag, the Tennessee Flag, and the Lynnville Flag all look so pretty flying on the flag pole in the center of town above the Veterans Monument.
