About 20 miles upstream from Nashville sits the “city by the lake”, Hendersonville. Its nickname is fitting as it holds 26 miles of Old Hickory Lake shoreline within its borders. As of late, Hendersonville has been growing rapidly due to its proximity to the city while still having an abundance of natural beauty combined with more affordable living (while also still offering luxury options).
Hendersonville was founded in the late 1780’s and was home to many Native Americans during that time. The Historic Rock Castle, which is also the oldest home in Middle Tennessee, allows you to explore the history of the city and its relations with Native American tribes of the area. Many well known Nashville-based stars past and present are drawn to Hendersonville for its idyllic location and beauty. One of the most notable, Johnny Cash, and his wife June Carter Cash lived along the banks of Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville for 35 years. Their home, known as “House of Cash”, still stands, and tourists can drive by and see the home located on Johnny Cash Parkway, of course. Other notable past/present residents include Conway Twitty, Kelly Clarkson, Young Buck, and Taylor Swift.
