Bordered by Eighth and Third Avenues North and between Jefferson and Hume streets, Germantown is re-emerging as Nashville’s uptown oasis. The town’s oldest residential community is just a few steps from Bicentennial Mall and Farmer’s Market. Investors and artists alike head north for easy access to restaurants, entertainment, and spectacular views of the State Capitol. Germantown is all about diversity. Spacious estates border modest worker’s cottages. The eight-block area is an architecturally heterogeneous mixture of residences built between 1840 and 1930, and new houses are built according to the neighborhood’s historic architectural guidelines. MUL zoning allows residential, commercial, office, retail and industrial entities to coexist side-by-side. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Germantown falls within one of MDHA‘s many redevelopment areas. The home of the historic Church of the Assumption and other landmarks, this renewed community is chock full of appealing sidewalks and gorgeous flora. Nashvillians in the know attend the popular Oktoberfest and Maifest celebrations as well as the Sounds games at brand new First Tennessee Park.
