South Nashville is not just south of downtown, is actually considered its own community. It’s bordered by Interstate 40 to the north, Interstate 65 to the west, Interstate 24 to the east, and Thompson Lane to the south, just south of Nolensville Road and Woodbine. It’s home to several smaller neighborhoods such as Chestnut Hill, Napier Area, Bransford Ave., Edgewood, Hurwood Heights, Woodycrest, Grandview Heights, and Raymond Heights.



The boundaries and demographics of South Nashville have changed over the last 150 years, understandably so. It originally started as an industrial blue-collar area comprised mainly of factories, mills, and rail yards. As the area grew, thousands moved into the area looking for employment and more affordable housing. South Nashville has been the most diverse part of the city and during the past 30 years, changes have transformed the appearance with urban renewal programs, construction of interstate highways, and a renewal and removal of thousands of buildings. Today, this area faces new challenges as many established neighborhoods deal with gentrification. There’s even an entire book based on the demographics and gentrification of South Nashville.


Because this area is so large there are several schools, but still all part of the Metro Nashville Public school district. Elementary schools include the Whitsitt Elementary, Fall-Hamilton elementary, the Napier enhancement school or the Glenncliff elementary school.
