Germantown (37208)

Bordered by Eighth and Third Avenues North and between Jefferson and Hume Streets, Germantown is re-emerging as Nashville’s uptown oasis. It is Nashville’s oldest residential community and is just a few steps from the Bicentennial Mall and the Farmer’s Market. It is the only traditional neighborhood with freestanding houses inside the interstate loop. Residents can head north for easy access to restaurants, entertainment, and spectacular views of the State Capitol. Popular neighborhood spots are Germantown Cafe and The Mad Platter.

Germantown is all about diversity. The eight-block area is an architecturally heterogeneous mixtures of residences built between 1840 and 1930, and new houses are built according to the neighborhood’s historic architectural guidelines. MUL zoning allows residential, commercial, office, retail and industrial entities to coexist side-by-side.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Germantown falls within one of the Metro Development and Housing Agency’s many redevelopment areas. Germantown’s very active neighborhood association prides itself in putting on spectacular events year round such as Oktoberfest and the annual Home & Garden Tour.
