All About Donelson

 

 

 

The Donelson neighborhood is one of Nashville's best-kept secrets!  A place where residents still pride themselves on a sense of community. Located about 6 mi east of downtown Nashville near U.S. Route 70, it is nestled between Old Hickory Lake, the Cumberland River, and Percy Priest Lake. Donelson is not a city in and of itself, but rather part of Nashville and Davidson County, primarily made up of the zip code 37214.

Donelson is named after John Donelson, who is the co-founder of Nashville and the father-in-law of Andrew Jackson. Donelson Plaza, which is still operating today, was one of the first "strip mall's" in the Nashville area.  The neighborhood is a popular stop on the Music City Star commuter rail line.  You can easily jump on board the train at the Donelson station for a ride straight to Broadway!  It is also known for its gorgeous park, Two-Rivers, as well as the conveniently attached Greenway trails.  Donelson's short commute times to the airport and downtown make this a highly sought after area to live.  Increasing its popularity is Donelson's close proximity to Opry Mills Mall, the Grand Ole Opry, the Stones River, and the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.

Bluefields is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Donelson, dating back to the 1930s.  Donelson is made up of mostly older Ranch-style homes.  Many of these homes are currently being renovated, and neighborhoods revitalized, as the Nashville real estate market continues to remain strong.
