The area carries with it an agricultural heritage. In times past the town was in the lead of the states strawberry production with large stakes in tobacco and bean crops as well.

Over the years as agricultural trade flourished the development of roads led to the formation of a crossroads. The intersection was first known as McCrea's Crossroads only to be later known as Graham's Crossroads.

In 1874 the town was chartered under the name Graham. The town eventually was renamed to Lynches Lake.
