Located just 15 minutes from downtown Nashville, Green Hills is an upscale neighborhood that blends affluent living with the culture of Music City.

A Brief History of Green Hills

Green Hills has changed so much since its early days when Hillsboro Road was a dirt lane dotted with the occasional farmhouse. Pictured above* is Fairview, the home of Mrs. Wilbur F. Foster and Mr. and Mrs. Chauncey C. Foster. This farmhouse was located at the corner of Hillsboro Road and Abbott Lane (now Abbott Martin Road). The neighborhood began to take shape shortly after Fairview was built and has become known over the years for its high-end shopping destinations, including the Green Hills Mall, which houses luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Tiffany, and more. But Green Hills is more than just a shopper's destination. It's a part of Nashville that celebrates community and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
