With chic restaurants in restored Victorian buildings, and cafes along the brick sidewalks, Germantown exudes period charm. Former warehouses contain elegant boutiques selling high-end shoes and clothing, while Nashville Farmers' Market has eclectic global eateries as well as vendors offering seasonal produce. Nearby, the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park features skyline views and monuments to Tennessee history.
Historic Germantown comprises a scant 18-square-block area: it’s bound by Jefferson Street on the south, Hume Street on the north, Rosa Parks Boulevard on the west and Third Avenue North on the east. Unlike so many urban Nashville neighborhoods, where demolitions abound and history goes in the dump, the visionaries of Germantown decided it was important to manage its growth and retain its character. Touché, Germantown.
While wandering the streets of Germantown, you will see Germantown as an alchemy of old, new, chic, industrial chic and just plain industrial. If you’re the type of person who loves the thrill of a treasure hunt, head to Germantown. By simply strolling the streets, you will discover charming, historic homes that date back to the 1800s, churches that have brought together the neighborhood’s residents for many years, nods to long-time residents and renovated buildings (such as the old firehouse repurposed into the Neighborhood Resource Center).With its rich history (dating back to its 1850s establishment by European Immigrants) and unparalleled growth, Germantown continues to morph and change into one of Nashville’s most vibrant neighborhoods. It has a bounty of architectural treasures and is one of the best examples of urban mixed-use done right in north Nashville.
