Autumn Leaves in Green Hills

.
Green Hills is one of the Nashville’s more affluent areas, often chosen by residents who don’t wish a long commute to downtown businesses and three area universities – Vanderbilt, Belmont and Lipscomb Universities (all of which are within a 5-minute drive).
Green Hills is also the home to The Mall at Green Hills, a high-end enclosed shopping center which began as a “strip center” (one of the first two sizable such developments in Nashville) in the early 1950s. Nordstrom and the Apple Store are some of the more recent additions to the mall. Hillsboro Village, with its many interesting shops, is only 3 minutes away.

The Bluebird Cafe, a famous live music venue, is located on Hillsboro Road in Green Hills. Hillsboro High School, located directly across the highway from the Mall, actually predates much of the neighborhood, which began on a small scale in the 1930s but was not highly populated until after World War II. Another public educational institution is Julia Green Elementary School, a primary school. A major private educational institution is Lipscomb University and its associated elementary and high schools. Another is Harpeth Hall School, a prestigious girls’ high school.

Green Hills is in many ways a typical development of its era. It consist primarily of brick-veneer “ranch” style detached houses on large lots In more recent years there has been considerable “infill” as many of the larger lots and other remaining open spaces have been redivided to become the sites of higher-density developments.
