Found in the heart of Middle Tennessee, La Vergne is a small town near Smyrna and Antioch. It’s located in Rutherford County and provides many newer homes. La Vergne is known as the fastest growing town in the state and it's very close to Nashville.

The 14,000-acre Percy Priest Lake area is found nearby and La Vergne is ranked at the sixth top business-friendly place in Tennessee. It's also found in the top fifteen for affordable housing in the United States.

This town is a good place for job seekers and ranked fourth in the state for those looking for a job. Of course, there's more here than just a business-friendly environment with affordable housing.

La Vergne is known for outdoor recreation, excellent shopping and easy access to the state of Tennessee. The town is located near three major interstates and provides easy access to many universities and colleges.

This area is home to nearly 33,000 residents and is considered a part of the Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area. La Vergne is also home to one of two United States printing plants called Lightning Source. Top employers in the area include:

  • Bridgestone/Firestone INC
  • Venture Express
  • Cardinal Health
  • Ingram Book Company
  • Schneider Electric

The city was incorporated in 1972, but received the name La Vergne, back in 1852. This name was given to the city to honor Francois Lenard Gregoire de Roulhac de LaVergne.

Plenty of history is found throughout the area including many Civil War battles, train wrecks and much more. From the building still standing to the major industrial growth found here, this area has been through quite a bit over the years.

Overall, La Vergne is good choice for someone looking for the small town atmosphere near Nashville. It provides a location unlike many of the other choices near the city.
