Nashville’s Woolworth On 5th Was Home To Sit-Ins During The Civil Rights Movement In The 60s

Nashville has its fair share of history as well as its fair share of restaurants, but there’s one spot that opened recently in downtown Nashville that is a perfect combination of the two. That restaurant is Woolworth on 5th, a spot that was once home to a lunch counter that found itself at the center of the Civil Rights movement in Nashville. And while it’s not the same restaurant as it once was, the new restaurant is a wonderful tribute to the brave men and women that help change the country nearly 60 years ago.
