Known for the history it provides to Nashville, Germantown is a part of the city settled by German immigrants in the mid nineteenth century. This is known as the first suburb of the city and the district features interesting architecture including many Victorian style buildings. Another very unique feature of this neighborhood are the more than 100 different species of trees found in the area. 

With the neighborhood currently being restored and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it has much to offer. Many enjoy the year-round farmers; markets found in the area with plenty of the freshest fruits and vegetables grown locally. While visiting the farmers' market, you can enjoy the ten different restaurants serving cuisine from all over the world. There's also a Flea Market open on the weekends with over 50 merchants, along with special events throughout the year.

The Germantown Cafe provides a great dining experience and was featured in Bon Appetit. This restaurant features traditional cooking with a twist and provides seasonal menu changes. Another favorite of the neighborhood, found in a restored Victorian home is Monell's. Many consider Monell's one of the staples of Nashville with family-style meals and tables perfect for large groups.

Within the neighborhood, many great restaurants and small businesses are found and they embrace the historic significance of the era. Even the newer businesses, such as City House Restaurant set up shop with decor matching the quaint town. The residents of this area enjoy the convenience of living close to everything the city offers, while being at the center of one of the most historic neighborhoods in the entire city.

Germantown was nearly destroyed in the 1970's with many buildings condemned, but the dedicated residents kept the area alive. It's now thriving with a vibrant feel and a diverse population of new and old.
