Hickman County has an abundance of natural beauty. In order to make one area more accessible, Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation has recently established Bon Aqua Woods Recreational Scenic Natural Area. It is located on Old Highway 46 near where the Bon Aqua Springs Resort was once located. Come down for a drive, take a walk in the old forest at Bon Aqua Woods, and buy some Diamond Gusset jeans at Bon Aqua Clothing Company up on the new Highway 46 just off I-40 exit 172.
Johnny Cash wrote “Saturday Night in Hickman County”, his ode to the simple, sweet living here when he lived in the Bon Aqua community.
You might also want to cruise on down a little further into Hickman County and visit Tarkington’s General Store to see an old-fashioned country store. On the banks of Hassell’s Creek, you can hear pickin’ on the porch and have a bologna sandwich and a cold soda (ask for a Co’ Cola, if you really want to fit in!)
