The Belmont and Hillsboro Village areas were once the expansive estate of Adelicia Acklen, whose antebellum home crowns the campus of Belmont University. These charming side streets feature wide, tree-lined sidewalks and appealing structures built from 1890 to the 1930s. Seasoned locals use the Magnolia Boulevard crosswalk to Hillsboro Village, Nashville’s hippest mix of businesses, well-constructed old homes and unique design character. This self-contained community holds a colorful strip of specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, and public art. Today this area is a pedestrian crossroad. Its ubiquitous sidewalks extend far into Music Row and the Hillsboro-West End vicinity. The neighborhood is accessible by foot to Vanderbiltand Belmont Universities, a local post office, banks and the Belcourt Theater.
