City of Moscow
Moscow TN is located on Hwy 57, just east of
Rossville, with Collierville and Memphis just 30 miles to the
west. One of the oldest town in Fayette County, Moscow
dates its beginning back to 1827, when Daniel Head, owner of
the land where Moscow stands, transferred it to five men.

and the North Fork of the Wolf River to create an excellent
trading center for southern Fayette County farmers.
Before its settlement by pioneers, Moscow was a hunting and
camping ground for indigenous Native American populations.
Several restaurants welcome travelers with home cooking, some
of the best catfish, and southern delights to be found
in the area.

traversed by the river's flood plain. The Wolf
eventually meanders more than 80 miles making its confluence
with the Mississippi River right in the heart of metropolitan
A prime hunting ground for whitetail deer, raccoon, squirrel,
rabbit and other small game, Moscow features a number of
checking stations where hunters are welcomed. Hunters
can also have their harvests processed for food and mounted
