Leiper's Fork, Tennessee

Leiper's Fork, Tennessee

Leiper's Fork, an unincorporated village in southwest Williamson County, sits a mile east of the Natchez Trace Parkway. The old Natchez Road came through the middle of town.

The Leiper's Fork area was settled in the late 1790s by pioneering families from North Carolina and Virginia that were given land grants as payment for their services in the Revolutionary War. The area was named after the Leiper family who lived along the creek (Leipers Fork) that passes through the village.

The village, with many late 19th century buildings and homes, is a Registered National Historic District. Many of the historic buildings that line both sides of Old Hillsboro Road (Hwy 46) through the center of town are restaurants, antique shops, gift shops and art galleries. Leiper's Fork is a very popular place to eat (Puckett's of Leiper's Fork and Country Boy Restaurant) and then do some casual shopping.
