Overview of Hornbeak
Hornbeak is nestled in the rolling hills of western Obion County, just a few miles west of Troy and a short drive from scenic Reelfoot Lake. For many years this quaint little town was known as Wilsonville. The town's name was later changed to Hornbeak after the proprietor of the town's general store, Frank Hornbeak. Hornbeak was incorporated in 1916.
