Donelson, TN

Donelson is a neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee located about 10 Km (6 mi) east of downtown Nashville along U.S. Route 70. It is named in honor of John Donelson, co-founder of Nashville and father-in-law of Andrew Jackson, Nashvillian and seventh President of the United States. It is now incorporated as part of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. In the 1880s Donelson was a station on the Tennessee & Pacific Railway just south of the former village of McWirtersville on the Lebanon Pike. It began its modern development shortly after World War II, and its location adjacent to Nashville's airport led to much of its later growth. It was also the site of an early example of what would later be called a shopping center or "strip mall", Donelson Plaza. The oldest neighborhood in Donelson is Bluefields. The development of the Bluefields subdivision began in 1929 by the Bransford Realty Company of Nashville, Tennessee. Home construction began in the early 1930's, with fifty to sixty homes built by the Bransford Realty Company by the end of 1938. The final phase of building, Bluefield Square, was developed in the 1970's on the property once occupied by the Swiss Farm Dairy within Bluefields proper. Donelson is now an example of an early postwar suburb with a stock of mostly half-century old, red brick, detached ranch-style homes. However, there has been some tendency for infill in recent years, largely tied into the expansion of sewers. The area's desirability was increased somewhat by the impoundment of Percy Priest Lake on the Stones River in the late 1960s which increased summertime recreational opportunities.

    • "Ms. Martin assisted my husband and I in purchasing our 1st home a few years back. We were young at the time and did not have a clue on what was in store when it came to the housing market, banks, lenders, insurance, etc. She was informative to help us understand step by step what was going on. Ms. Martin was more than welcoming with getting us in a home that was perfect for our needs, she also made sure to keep us in the loop on everything that was going on with the buying process. She is very confident in her work (which is a plus), customer focused and has your needs at heart. I have and will continue to refer customers to her."
