Overview

Known today as the Country Music Capital of the World, Nashville was first settled by Native Americans as early as 8000 BC. French fur traders arrived around 1717, and by 1779, 'Fort Nashborough' was officially established. In 1843, the settlement, now renamed 'Nashville,' became the capital of Tennessee. Since its early days, Nashville has had a colorful history, surviving both the Civil War and two cholera epidemics. This city, once home to Daniel Boone and President Andrew Jackson, is now home to the Grand Ole Opry. With side-by-side archival and contemporary photos, Nashville Then and Now gives readers a visual tour of the city's most enduring landmarks, like the Parthenon, built for the Tennessee Centennial in 1897, and Andrew Jackson's Hermitage.
