24 Aug Living in Nolensville
The landlocked state of Tennessee is one that is filled with exuberant people and classic southern charm. While Tennessee is greatly known for its rich history that dates back to the Civil War era, it’s truly the towns of Tennessee that make this state the place to be. Even though the heart of rock and roll and country music is hard to triumph, many of Tennessee’s small towns have so much to offer to residents and visitors alike. Let’s take Nolensville, for instance; located in Middle Tennessee, Nolensville is a small, rural community that’s flourishing with preserved historical sites. In addition to being home to various structures from the 1800s, Nolensville offers delicious BBQ hotspots, timeless antique shops, and close-knit neighborhoods.
