History of Hendersonville Tennessee

Hendersonville, Tennessee began after World War II, when three separate factors, came in to play. The town's proximity to Nashville, the improvements to Gallatin Road, the main road between Hendersonville and Nashville, and the impoundment of Old Hickory Lake, kicked off a second great land grab. A delightful life in the suburbs along the lake was just minutes away by automobile from Nashville, where the jobs were. It is almost impossible to imagine what Hendersonville would be like today if Old Hickory Lake had not been created.   Today, many people call it home and love the close community atmosphere along with all the amenities you can imagine.,  Shopping, restaurants, greenways, parks, boating, fishing, private docks outside your backdoor and much more add to the relaxing lifestyle.   Cost of living is reasonable and keep the Hendersonville TN Real Estate market booming.  A Hendersonville home has always been considered a great investment.
