Germantown Real Estate
Named for the European immigrants that first settled here in the 19th century, Germantown is dubbed as “Nashville’s first suburb.” Comprised in an 18-square-block area, this urban community faced revitalization in the early 1970s and later declared as a place in the National Register of Historical Places in 1979. The area homes more than 100 different tree species lining the neighborhood streets and front yards – hard to believe that such a place so close to downtown would have such an abundance in nature’s decor.
Entertainment thrives in this special district of town. Fans enjoy America’s favorite past time at the First Tennessee Park, home to the Nashville Sounds minor-league baseball team. The Nashville Farmer’s Market is wedged between Rosa L Parks Blvd and the Bicentennial Capitol Mall Park providing fresh produce and handmade goods from local merchants.
One of the biggest events hosted in the area is the annual Oktoberfest celebration that brings in roughly 200,000 people for the parade, a 5K bier run and dachshund derby race and beer-drinking fun. Other festivals include the Garden Guzzel in May and the Germantown Home Tour in December.
