Chestnut Hill Neighborhood

Southeast of the I-40/I-65 intersection, bordered by Trevecca-Nazarene University and Fort Negley Park near downtown, from late 19th century.

Bordered by the thriving Wedgewood-Houston area of South Nashville, small but important Chestnut Hill is becoming one of the city’s most rapidly redeveloping neighborhoods. With stunning views of downtown, the
neighborhood retains distinctive homes and buildings dating from the nineteenth century as well as modest
working-class homes from the early twentieth century. One of the neighborhood landmarks, the Layman Drug Store, pictured below, was sold to developers in March for over $1 million and will likely be demolished to make way for a mixed-use redevelopment. Members of the community are also worried about tear-downs of original historic homes to be replaced with new luxury homes.
