Mt. Juliet was first settled in the early 1800s, when many of the first Americans chose this area because of its natural abundance and commercial potential. Most historians trace the name Mt. Juliet to the Mount Juliet Estate in Ireland. That prominent manor house that overlooks a river in the Irish countryside.
In 1972 the town was officially incorporated, and today Mt. Juliet occupies about 16 square miles and boasts a small town population of around 25,000. Many of the town’s residents moved to Mt. Juliet to take advantage of its prime location. Not only is it a quick commute to anywhere in the Greater Nashville area, but it offers easy access to the Appalachian Mountains, the Atlantic seaboard, and beyond. In fact, Mt. Juliet is within a day’s drive of approximately a third of the United States. For those who prefer to fly, Nashville International Airport is just 15 minutes away – with connections to at least 100 other destinations.
Mt. Juliet is also home to multiple public recreation facilities where you can enjoy boating, swimming, hiking, fishing, and other outdoor activities for the whole family. The official city slogan "The City Between the Lakes" is due to Mt. Juliet's proximity to both Old Hickory Lake to it's north and Percy Priest Lake to it's south. Mt. Juliet offers some of the most challenging and pleasurable golf courses in the area, as well as horseback riding, nature trail walks, great public parks, and the Cedar Creek Sports Center – with more than 16 acres of all day fun for kids. Cedar Creeks has putt-putt golf, a 1,100 foot long go-kart track, bumper boats, a driving range, batting cages, and professional sports instruction.
Mt. Juliet has invested wisely in its infrastructure, too, to facilitate both commuters and commerce, and has become one of the fastest-growing cities in Tennessee. It is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in Tennessee.
