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.

There is a local ball field, which features a baseball, basket ball and tennis courts. Flippens Peach Orchard is also located here and is quite a pretty view when all the blooms are out in spring.
