Nolensville
While traveling along Mill Creek just south of Nashville in 1797, legend claims that a broken wagon wheel suspended the travel of pioneer William Nolen and his family. Instead of forging ahead, the Nolens opted to settle in this fertile, game-filled land. The town, still symbolized by a broken wheel, has weathered the Civil War, the Great Depression, destructive floods, and devastating fires. Once a stop along a major stagecoach route to Nashville, Nolensville's small-town character and proximity to Music City continue to attract new residents and visitors. Many shops and eateries situated along scenic Mill Creek inhabit dwellings with storied pasts. Historic structures like the Nolensville Co-op Creamery preserve the resilient charm of Nolensville while highlighting the agricultural and commercial trends that shaped this vibrant community.
