On a beautiful summer day, take an easy drive twenty five miles south of downtown Nashville through the rolling hills, and you will come to the tranquil setting of Thompson’s Station, Tennessee. What used to be a one stop sign town is now a flourishing community in popular Williamson County with new developments popping up on every other street.
The city’s name descends from Dr. Elijah Thompson who donated land for the addition of a train station in 1855 to the community. Today, the Town Hall is a reconstructed version of the original Thompson Station Train Depot that sits along the railroad tracks that run through the town. Its earliest settlers arrived in the 1780’s, and the town has historically been a residential community. The recent growth, however, has attracted larger businesses to move into the area.
The Mars Regional Innovation Center put down roots in Thompson’s Station in 2014, and is one largest businesses that moved to the area. Currently, popular event/wedding venue, Graystone Quarry, is building a 5,000+ seat amphitheater to host live shows. The growth of businesses have created a more attractive area to live and work. Many Nashville and Franklin residents are moving south and calling Thompson’s Station home.
Larger residential developments have prompted growth in the area as well. Bridgemore Village, Fields of Canterbury, and Tollgate Village are some of the larger subdivisions you will find in the area. Wonderful amenities, luxurious and modern homes (many with smart features), and a great family feel are among some of the features buyers will find in these thriving neighborhoods. Currently, the median price for a single-family home in Thompson Station is $824,900 with a median of 3,604 sqft. The median price for a townhouse is $453,900 with a median of 1,450 sqft.
Next time you are in Thompson’s Station, make sure to check out the H. Clark Distillery, which was the first legal distillery in Williamson County in over 100 years. They create hand-crafted Tennessee Bourbon, Gin, and Black & Tan Whiskey. Cheers to Thompson’s Station!
