Bell Buckle is a town in Bedford County, Tennessee just minutes from Murfreesboro. The downtown area is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Bell Buckle Historic District.
The origin of the town's unusual name is not known. According to the local chamber of commerce, one story says that one of the first white men to travel through the area found a tree with carvings of a cowbell and a buckle, possibly carved by Indians to warn white settlers away, or possibly carved by surveyors to mark the area as good pasture. In any case, the nearby creek was named Bell Buckle Creek and the town later took the name of the creek.
The Bell Buckle area was settled in the early 19th century. A bustling town grew up after the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad came through the area in 1852. Bell Buckle is noted for the many preserved and restored Victorian homes, shops, and churches located in and around downtown. The town hosts two yearly festivals: the RC Cola & Moon Pie festival and the Webb School Arts & Crafts Fair.
