Benton's Well, Green's Grocery, and Slave Cabin

4345 Old Hillsboro Road
Leiper's Fork, TN 37604

Travelers along the old Natchez Trace drank from Benton’s Well and camped here, and an 1801 slave cabin still exists on the (now private) property. Nearby Green’s Grocery is now a tucked-away music venue for local pickers and country stars alike.

Green’s Grocery used to be a grocery store run by Mr. Herman Green and his family. Painted an alarming shade of pastel green, the grocery made a mighty fine bologna sandwich. Nowadays, music is made here.
