The City of Lobelville, located in northern Perry County, was settled by a Frenchman Herry De Lobel in 1854. Hence, the name of the city, which was then called Lobelsville. The earliest settlement in Perry County is Tom's Creek, which is part of the Pineview community of Lobelville. In fact, the first area store was opened by James Yeates in 1819. Moreover, the oldest business still operating is T.G.T., now also known as El Paso Energy. It began its operation in 1943. Together with local small businesses, Lobelville is honored to host a number of bigger businesses such as Reliable Products, Bates Fabricating, and Phytotherapy. The City of Lobelville is a wonderful place for Summer family recreation and past-times including our annual high school girl's softball tournament Buffalo River Springfest, our free outdoor Summer-long concert series MUSIC ON MAIN STREET, the annual October Tennessee State Finals of the national and prestigious talent search Texaco County Showdown, Lobelville's annual Homecoming, the annual Kari May 5-K run, and several other annual events. One can also fish, swim, hunt, enjoy picnics and camping, or golf in and around our community. Still one of the most popular summer activities is the adventurous canoe floating along the banks of the picturesque Buffalo River. Canoe rentals and convenience stores are readily available in Lobelville, Tennessee for visitors. Please call us at the Lobelville City Hall if we may ever answer any questions you may have!
