History of Goodlettsville Tennessee

Explored and settled just a few short years after our nation declared its independence, the city of Goodlettsville has a rich historical heritage. The town, situated in Davidson, Robertson and Sumner counties, originated as Manskers Station, a fort established in 1780 by Kasper Mansker, a Virginia man who first explored the area in 1772. The creation of Mansker Fort coincided with the founding of Fort Nashborough, which later became Nashville, by John Robertson. Mansker and Robertson found the sites in 1779.

Today Goodlettsville's rich heritage can be enjoyed in such places as the city's Frontier Life Center, or on Main Street where buildings from the city's past house antique stores and specialty shops. At the Frontier Life Center, guests enjoy 18th Century Tennessee, guided by re-enactors through reconstructed Mansker's Station, considered to be one of the most historically-accurate in the nation, and the Bowen Plantation House, the region's earliest brick structure, outfitted in its simple, 1790's finery.
