Nashville's oldest suburb is all new again.

Established in the 1850s by European immigrants Historic Germantown was Nashville’s first suburb. The neighborhood was born as large brick town homes were erected next to modest worker’s cottages, providing an early example of a mixed-use neighborhood with a diverse socioeconomic population.


Neighborhood revitalization began in the 1970s as two historic churches began renovations. Historic Germantown was deemed a Registered Historic District in 1979 and was also designated a city arboretum by the Nashville Tree Foundation for the more than 100 species of trees that grow in the neighborhood.


Modern day Germantown is undergoing a rebirth as it is restored to its original grandeur while bringing Nashvillians into the urban core to live, work and play.
