Many of the County Links
on the left will keep you specifically in or near Fayetteville and Lincoln County, Tennessee. We add new listings and links on a regular basis so bookmark this page and check back often.
Lincoln County was carved from territory ceded to the United States by the Cherokee and Chickasaw Indian tribes. The Elk River, called "Chewalee" by the Indians, flows through Lincoln County. Lincoln County was named for Revolutionary War hero General Benjamin Lincoln. He served under General George Washington and was known for being appointed by him to accept Lord Cornwallis' sword as a symbol of England's surrender to the American Colonies.
The Lincoln County Process, used in the distillation of Tennessee whiskey, is named for this county, as Jack Daniel's distillery was originally located here. However, a subsequent redrawing of county lines resulted in the establishment of adjacent Moore County, where it is now located, so no current Lincoln County business uses its namesake process.
Located in Middle Tennessee, Fayetteville, the county seat, is a charming community with a number of attractive qualities. It features one of the most beautiful and economically vibrant downtown courthouse squares in Tennessee and is certified by the state as an official Main Street District, anchored by the largest fabric store in the Southeast, along with a classic sidewalk theatre featuring the newest movie releases.
Just off the square is historic Washington Street and Mulberry Avenue, which feature many historic homes. We also have many new areas of residential and commercial growth that are properly located to protect our community's historic heritage.
