Overview

During the 19th century, Nashville's families of means built large estates in bucolic East Nashville, away from the noise and pollution of the city. The village of Edgefield became Nashville's most exclusive suburb, with rows of commanding Italianate, Renaissance Revival, and Queen Anne townhomes lining Woodland, Russell, and Fatherland Streets. Streetcar suburbs formed in the Lockeland and East End areas as farmland and country estates were sold off and subdivided. Included in this exquisite collection of images--most of which are from state and local archives and private collections--are rare views of local landmarks that are now only memories. View the magnificent estates, historic churches and schools, and mom-and-pop
businesses that once thrived in these communities. Experience the tranquility of Shelby Park--a relaxing boat ride on Lake Sevier or a picnic in the Sycamore Lodge. Also explored in East Nashville are the trials the area has endured over the years, from the Great Fire of 1916 and the Tornado of 1933 to the vast changes brought on by urban renewal. This collection is a tribute to the people who have helped make East Nashville what it is today.
