Old Hickory, TN is an historic village tucked just east of Nashville. Built in 1918 and named for President Andrew Jackson whose nickname was “Old Hickory”, this little gem is a must visit. For 2 years during WWI, Old Hickory was a thriving town of industry. But after the war, it became a veritable ghost town. You can read more of the history here http://www.oldhickory.org/aboutvillage.html.
Nearly 100 years later, the heart of the village is still alive and more and more folks are starting to take notice. Today, the little village is filled with historic homes and local shops. You can find coffee houses, meats n three and an antique treasure to take home after your day out. If you check out the postcard above, you’ll see a legend of the local joints. My personal favorites are numbers 12 & 13. The Beehive and Hot Mama Soaps never disappoint when searching for the perfect gift.
The residents of Old Hickory pride themselves on their quaintness. And it’s not a lie! Driving through The Village you see neighbors out helping neighbors, notices for Village Happenings and Events and get a feeling of home. On summer evenings, sidewalks generally host runners and walkers and they are walking and running to the music of grills firing up and kids playing in the front yards.
