Twin Cities Chamber of Commerce
Welcome to the Twin Cities
Welcome to the Twin Cities, Fulton, Kentucky and South Fulton, Tennessee. We hope you enjoy your visit, and we hope you will decide to stay. The Twin Cities are also conveniently located close to Kentucky Lake for those who enjoy outdoor activities.
Our towns, as you probably know, are located in two states. We have two city governments and two school systems. Fulton School System is an independent system and South Fulton Schools are part of the Obion County Tennessee School System.
The towns were started in 1929 by B. F. Carr. The community prospered as a railroad town, and at one time was the “Banana Capitol of the World.” Prior to the invention of refrigerated rail cars, all the bananas that came into this part of the United States were shipped into Fulton to be iced down.
As the years have passed, the railroad is still an important part of our economy. We move approximately 2,000 cars daily through our yards. We have diversified and prospered in other areas as well. We manufacture car parts, sportswear, specialty trailers and plastics. We have one of the largest mechanical contracting firms in the United States, and we are home to Ferry Morse Seed Company.
There is a nice mix of older, historically significant homes, as well as sub-divided modern residential property. The Twin Cities remain a close knit, friendly community, ideal for raising children and enjoying family activities. The Twin Cities are conveniently located close to Kentucky Lake for those who enjoy outdoor activities. For those seeking a more metropolitan experience, the Twin Cities are within close driving distance to Nashville, Memphis, and also St. Louis.
For anyone looking for the quintessential southern small town experience, the Twin Cities will surely not disappoint. We always look forward to meeting new folks and will undoubtedly make your visit a welcome one.
I hope the enclosed information will give you an even better picture of the Twin Cities. Please do not hesitate to call if I can be of any further help.

Business of the Month
Constant Auctions located at 304 E. State Line St. Fulton, KY. Constant Auctions is a fully-licensed, family-owned, and operated auction business with over 15 years experience. Two years ago after noticing the need for an on-site auction service in the Twin Cities, Anthony bought the Old Fulton Leader Newspaper building and started offering a liquidation auction service.
Rather you have inherited an overwhelming large estate, downsizing, or just wanting to rid yourself of a couple of items, Constant Auctions can help. They offer consignment for those with items to consign and a very wide range of items for those wanting to buy. One of their missions is to provide as much as possible to the local Twin Cities Charities. In doing so they accept donated items that are auctioned off with 100% of proceeds going to local charities. To get in on the bidding actions simply visit Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/groups/ConstantOnlineAuctions or come in during business hours to leave silent bids.
Constant Auctions is open every Friday 12:00pm-5:00pm and Sunday 12:00pm-2:00pm.
