Garrison Keillor visited La Grange on Sunday, April 7, 1991, on his way to Nashville. He told about it in one of his stories:
"It's so gorgeous for somebody from Lake Wobegon to come down south this time of year. It's so overwhelming, really -- to come down here and see Spring in full motion, to drive through Tennessee and see these beautiful little towns. I was in Memphis last Sunday. I drove out east of there with my wife. We drove through a little town -- I think it's called La Grange -- isn't it? Out there on Highway 57. It's the most beautiful town I think I've ever seen. Just big yards full of flowers, flowering bushes and trees and flowers everywhere, and vines. White houses -- white houses, old big rambling white houses with verandas which had never been renovated you know, to their non-existent elegance, but sort of were slowly, quietly moldering like the rest of us. Just a beautiful little town, sitting out there."
