History tucked away in rolling hills...
About 2 miles west of Bell Buckle on Coop Rd. There is a small historic church called 'Crossroads church'... It is a beautiful little piece of history to visit... Built in 1832. There is also a very old graveyard next to the church. It is a peaceful place to visit as there is nothing around but farmland and trees.
If you are an antique lover Bell Buckle has many fine antique shops... The most famous being 'The Livery Stable'... It is a maze of antiques inside that seems to go on forever! I have purchased many nice Victorian-era books there for a good price.
Halfway between Bell Buckle and Wartrace there is a small Civil War reenactment shop. I have never visited, but it seems neat for the Civil war buff out there!
The Moon Pie Queen Beauty Pageant
Beauty pageants are hardly offbeat. Nothing says mainstream middle America like a good beauty pageant. Like them or not, you can't deny the splendour involved and the pride each town feels as they crown their 'Miss ______'
Which is another reason why Bell Buckle is so special. You see, in Bell Buckle, they have a pageant to choose the 'Moon Pie Queen' and the 'RC King'. The catch? The Moon Pie Queen is a guy dressed in drag! It's so great, particularly for a small town so deep in Dixie. So, here is the happy couple for 1995! Congratulations!
