Round Lick was a community in Wilson County, Tennessee along Round Lick Creek. The creek runs through the eastern part of the county, through the communities of Commerce and Watertown. The Round Lick community of neighboring families lay between the two present towns. In the early to mid-19th century, numerous families migrated from there to southern Arkansas, seeking areas where land was more plentiful for farming.
