What’s better than the perfect blend of past and present to make a great place to live? Ideally located south of Nashville, Spring Hill is one of the fastest growing cities in Tennessee. Families choose Spring Hill because of its convenience, affordability, friendliness, and access.

When you visit Spring Hill, you’ll find an excellent range of housing, new retail, and shopping, employment, plus those desirable historic properties which reflect the area’s Civil War heritage and tradition.

Once you’re living in Spring Hill, you’ll find the community a great place to raise a family. The City of Spring Hill is strongly focused on building pedestrian walkways and creating activities-to-get-you-going like the annual late-summer Art Walk through downtown.

And don’t worry, you’re in Music Country! Spring Hill offers its own live music experiences like Pickin in the Park, a showcase series outdoors at Harvey Park. Bring your chairs and lawn quilts and settle in for a great evening. Be on the lookout for the County Ham Festival held every fall, with free admission, more great live music, tasty Southern dishes, games, competitions, arts and crafts, a kids’ zone and more. And, for the past nine years, General Motors has been the keynote sponsor of the Spring Hill Pay It Forward Festival, focusing on local support for business and the community. Enjoy fishing, football, soccer, kickball, health screenings, nutrition education and demonstrations, sports clinics, baseball, sack races, relay races, a food court, top-notch live music and entertainment, and much more.

You’ll find Spring Hill’s focus on its authentic heritage refreshing. The town’s history dates back to the days when Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Shawnee people hunted here, and settlers came and stayed because of the beautiful rolling hills and natural springs, building beautiful mansions and churches. After the Civil War and the historic Battle of Spring Hill was over, the city became known for livestock breeding, farming and a commitment to quality education that continues today. In the early 1980s, General Motors chose Spring Hill for the site of a new automotive plant and has proven to be a great partner to the community.

Today, Spring Hill’s population is nearing 40,000. The city is only expected to continue to grow, given its ideal location, great quality of life and convenience to Nashville.

Spring Hill combines the best of small-town living with great activities and a friendly atmosphere!

Take a strong dose of history, combine it with great little shops, an up-and-coming Market Square, award-winning restaurants, and a village feel where the people know each other and welcome newcomers…and you’re talking about Nolensville, Tennessee.

Now one of the hottest family destinations in middle Tennessee, Nolensville is a great example of a small town feel with an excellent location and great amenities.

Even as we write this, a town center Market Square is being designed, funded and built. The vision for this new downtown gathering place includes spaces for the community to gather, with children playing in open areas, people wandering in and out of locally owned shops, and friends sipping coffee outdoors at their favorite bistros or enjoying a leisurely lunch at one of the many great food stops. It will have a strong local feel coupled with great things to do.Band Playing at the Buttercup Festival, Nolensville TN
