The story goes that William Nolen and his family were traveling through the area when his wagon broke down. Stopping to fix it, Nolen noticed the abundant game and clean water, and he decided to travel no further. He purchased a large piece of property and began dividing lots for the town that still bears his name, officially incorporated in 1838. You can still see William Nolen’s home today. Nolensville Road became a major route between Chapel Hill and Nashville, bringing stagecoach traffic and the need for hotels and businesses in town.
Still a small, rural community, Nolensville reincorporated in 1996 and is looking forward to future growth as it preserves its village heritage. The flourishing area is filled with beautifully preserved sites.
Once the center of Nolensville, visit the Nolensville Feed Mill, which houses a store with Amish goods. Also, take note of the Nolensville Co-Op Creamery, which made butter known throughout the area and is now an antiques store.
Said to be an antiquer’s dream, most of the old buildings of the farming community are now antiques stores. Once you’ve finished shopping for antiques, stop for BBQ at the local hotspot Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint.
