A very popular historic neighborhood in Nashville is the East Nashville Neighborhood. This is a low-key type of area with plenty of personality.

Since the 1916 fire destroyed over 600 buildings in the area, many find the mixture of antebellum buildings a great part of this neighborhood.
Edgefield is part of this area and one of two historic preservation districts. This means any new construction must be approved by the Metro Historical Commission, including additions, alterations, fences and demolitions.
