View Full Version : Old city limts of Nashville?
Dec 8, 2003, 6:19 PM
Looking at Uncle Dave's location made me wonder...
What were the old city limits of Nashville pre-consolidation? Does anyone have a map showing what the boundries were? I would like to do some population research on the old city.

Justin, I wish I could tell you exactly where the old limits were. Even tho' I was 10 years old when the city and county consolidated, I wasn't thinking too much about boundaries. Life was full of them to a 10-year-old as it was. What made me think about it was all the discussions about the consolidated Metro Government that is being studied closely by the National League of Cities convention going on this week in Nashville. I understand Louisville just just consolidated. Hopefully they'll be able to learn from some of our earlier mistakes with the process and avoid some of the natural missteps when attempting pioneering legislation as we did in 1963.
I also think about it when I get my property tax statement. I'm in the Urban Services District (old city limits) and the rest of the county is listed as the General Services District. My taxes run a bit higher because of the services I don't have to contract for independently.
You're at the Sheraton so much, why don't you walk down to the main library and check out the Nashville Room. It's an incredible collection on the history of Nashville, with photos, maps, memorabilia. You'll be amazed at what you find. I love that place.
