Historic Nashville Tours

Nashville is a city with so much rich history, book your Historic tour today and see history come to life as you visit various locations in downtown Nashville and the surrounding areas, including Germantown, Fort Negley, and Printer’s Alley to name a few.

 

  • Germantown – Established in the 1850s by European Immigrants, Historic Germantown was Nashville’s first suburb. The neighborhood was born as large brick town homes were erected next to modest worker’s cottages, providing an early example of a mixed-use neighborhood with a diverse socioeconomic population. Neighborhood revitalization began in the 1970s as two historic churches began renovations. Historic Germantown was deemed a Registered Historic District in 1979 and was also designated a city arboretum by the Nashville Tree Foundation for the more than 100 species of trees that grow in the neighborhood.

  • The Bluebird Café – Located on Hillsboro Pike, in an unassuming strip mall between a Shell gas station and a McDonald’s, the Bluebird Café is one of the top venues in America for hearing up-and-coming (and already famous) singers and songwriters. The small, 100-seat room isn’t fancy, but an evening there sure is fun. Country, rock, and contemporary Christian songwriters gather and are sometimes joined by Bluebird alumni, such as Kathy Mattea and Garth Brooks.

 

  • The Parthenon – The centerpiece of Nashville’s Centennial Park, this full-scale re-creation of the ancient Greek Parthenon was built in 1897 as part of the city’s Centennial Exposition. The recently renovated building now serves as Nashville’s city art museum and features two galleries exhibiting American art from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as temporary shows and exhibits. In addition to the artwork, the building also houses a 41-foot-tall statue of the Greek goddess Athena, sculpted by Tennessee artist Alan LeQuire in 1990.

  • Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum – This is a self-guided museum, which allows you to design your own experience based on your specific interests.  With the newly expanded exhibit space, it is suggested to allow approximately 2-3 hours to experience the museum.  However, depending upon your pace, you may like to stay longer.  The museum ticket is good all day, so you may come and go as desired as there is so much to explore.

 

  • RCA Studio B – Nashville’s only historic studio tour. After taking in the sights at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, take a tour of RCA Studio B. Located on downtown’s famed “Music Row,” Nashville’s oldest recording studio was built in 1957 and reopened as part of the museum in 1977. Some of country’s biggest stars including Elvis Presley (who cut 150 tracks there), Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Lee Ann Rimes, recorded more than 1,000 top 10 hits in this historic studio. Today, Belmont University uses the facility to teach future recording engineers, musicians, and singing stars the fine art of making music.

 

  • Grand Ole Opry – Today, 90 years after the first Grand Ole Opry show was broadcast live on the radio, people in every corner of the globe recognize the Grand Ole Opry as the show that made country music famous.

  • Fort Negley – A fortification built for the American Civil War, located approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) south of downtown Nashville, Tennessee. It was the largest inland fort built in the United States during the war.
