Originally owned by the McGavock family for agricultural purposes, Germantown became a residential area in the early 1900s. It’s location attracted many craftsmen, tradesmen, and businessmen namely of the German descent, creating the name Germantown. After going through a rough patch created by the war and industrial rezoning, Germantown began to rise again in the early 70s, when a group of local Nashvillians saw value in the historic homes, and wanted to preserve the area’s character. In 1979 Germantown was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fast forward to present day and you’ll see that the area has regained it’s early 1900s charm, making it one of Nashville’s most popular neighborhoods.
