7 Small Towns Around Nashville Where Everyone Knows Your Name
There’s something sweet and nostalgic about a small town. Something that reminds us of simpler times, pulls us back towards the way things once were. Towards the building blocks of our state and the people that truly made it worthwhile. These seven towns will tear you back towards the once was, and give the present a sweet whiff of nostalgia.
We put Franklin at the top of the list because it definitely is one of the largest. It's a popular spot in Wililamson County for the schools and cute downtown historic district. Franklin was also pivotal during the Civil War, during the Battle of Franklin.
This Robertson county gem is popular for its historic downtown and great haunted houses during October. Yeah, a bit random - but still neat. There are roughly 16,000 folks who make Springfield their home, and we're sure the smattering of high schools and churches keep the community close together.
5. Whites Creek
This small facet of the Nashville community is tucked a bit away from town, and has deep historic roots. It's actually said that famed outlaw James Gang made his way to town, and local arrests send Jesse James on his way. How neat is that...? Albeit a bit dark.
We're huge fans of Columbia. Known as one of the most affordable areas in Middle Tennessee, Columbia is a fabulous place to visit, what for their sweet downtown and homey atmosphere. Muletown Coffee is a popular place to visit as well, if you manage to make it down.
Great for antiquing, walking the historic downtown and grabbing a quick cup of coffee from Mama's Java. Their new high school holds wild promise and Nolensville is growing by the day.
2. Leipers Fork
This is where the original Puckett's is located! The now-chain has its roots just outside of Franklin, and has a sweet Main Street that's accented by a close-knit community. Plus, the drive out in the country is positively stunning. Bar none.
1. Bell Buckle
With less than 600 residents, you're sure to be recognized if you plant your roots in Bell Buckle. Their sweet downtown is known for the annual RC Cola Moon Pie Festival. The Bell Buckle Cafe is known for their hospitality and great eats - this is one tiny Tennessee town you're sure to fall in love with.
