The Bucksnort Legend

How Bucksnort Got Its Name

Bucksnort is the unusual name of a small community on I-40 in Hickman County, Tennessee. You may think the community received its name because of the presence of a large number of deer found in the area. However, the most often told story about the naming of Bucksnort goes back to the 1880's to a trader living here by the name of Buck. Along with the items of an 1880's mercantile, it seems Buck also sold "Moonshine". People would say they were going to "Bucks to get a snort", hence the name "Bucksnort".
