Old Hickory is a hidden gem of a town, with a beautiful village center.
As with every part of Nashville, we have roots that date back to the civil war era, but the town really got a kickstart after money began dumping in around WW1 for a gunpowder plant. DuPont swept in and built a whole village for all the employees, as well as a post office, churches, a bank, a fire department, and schools. Old Hickory Village is full of historic homes (some are on the National Registry), many of them Sears Modern homes, kept in tact by loving tenants over the years, now inspiring a unique type of development and design in the surrounding area.
The Village sits overlooking the Blue Turtle Bay Marina, Sam’s Sports Grill, and yes, all that is on Old Hickory Lake. There are public and private access points to the lake, including a little beach area near the dam. Move away from the lake and you get other little centers around Old Hickory Blvd, the Old Hickory Country Club and the Hermitage Golf Course. All this, and your minutes from all that is available in Hermitage, Hendersonville, East Nashville and even Downtown.
