One of Nashville’s oldest neighborhoods, Historic Germantown, will be celebrating the season with our annual Holiday Tour. Historic meets new urban design this year as we showcase some of our neighborhood’s magic.
This event will benefit Crossroads Campus.


We are excited to announce the Tour will begin at The Flats at Taylor Place.

A creative, urban community where the past and present meet in perfect harmony, they are a good neighbor. Bask in the stunning design, open spaces and urban décor.”


Tempered’s Staci Bockman will treat us to an expert chocolate tasting and wine pairing. Tempered Café and Chocolate is the creation of 312 Pizza Company founders (Staci Bockman, Daniel Bockman, Stormy Wolff, Bill Wolff, and Kimberly Wolff). Staci Bockman’s dream to open a chocolate shop came to fruition when the Germantown storefront became available. December will hallmark their second anniversary. Nothing tastes better with chocolate than red wine or champagne, so you will be in for a treat.
Stroll historic streets, stopping at festive homes and churches. Enjoy new friends and old, while relishing all that makes our community splendid in every way, especially during the holiday season.


Last stop on the Tour will be Cochon Butcher | Nashville, a butcher shop, a sandwich counter and a wine bar. Inspired by old-world meat markets, Butcher specializes in house-made meats, terrines and sausages. GM, Gabe Fairchild, will offer an assortment of charcuteries to please your palate. This favorite spot opened its doors in the Spring of 2015. A New Orleans original, Butcher’s culinary delights remind many of the days when Germantown was the center of good meats in Nashville.


Historic Germantown Neighborhood Association is pleased to donate proceeds from the Tour to Crossroads Campus. Most are aware of their work with homeless animals, yet their commitment to fostering underserved youth has been equally successful. StyleBlueprint recently interviewed Crossroads’ founder, Lisa Stetar.

Lisa Stetar of Crossroads Campus: FACES of Nashville
November 6, 2016 – Alex Hendrickson
With the aim of putting the healing power of the human-animal bond to work, Lisa Stetar founded Crossroads Campus, a Germantown-based nonprofit that works to help neglected animals and homeless Nashvillians by nurturing a bond between the two and helping them to learn and heal from — and with — one another. Through her work, Lisa is able to enrich the lives of those with whom she works. Today, she gives us a closer look into the nonprofit, offers ways you can get involved, shares her favorite spots in Germantown and suggests a few good reads. It is with great joy that we welcome Lisa Stetar, Founding Director of Crossroads Campus as our newest FACE of Nashville.


Mark your calendars, tell your friends and bring your family and loved ones on Sunday, December 4, 2017, from 4-7PM.
