An affluent suburb full of historic Nashville properties
These affluent suburbs have many of the oldest properties of Nashville. The area is known for its prime shopping and dining, as well as being home to some of the most iconic music venues in the city. It’s an upscale haven of luxury and lifestyle that’s a sought after location for locals and visitors alike.
Green Hills was founded in the 1930s but didn’t truly become popular until the end of World War II. In the late 1930s, commercial ventures began to pop up, such as Green Hills Market and Green Hills Pharmacy. It’s now one of the busiest commercial sectors in the city.
In keeping with their roots, the area leans toward being drivable instead of walkable and is populated with large, stately homes. Both Forest Hills and Greenhills are full of historic residences, mostly single-family homes placed on large, wooded lots.
