Gallatin, TN

  Gallatin has a population of 23,235. The county seat of Sumner County, Gallatin serves as the hub of governmental activities with everything from the Board of Education to the criminal court system located within its borders.

The city is just far enough from Nashville to offer its residents its own services and amenities with a growing number of cultural opportunities through community theater and music groups.

Much care has gone to preserving Gallatin's past and making it a part of the city's future. The historic square is home to The Palace Theater, a completely restored 1913 theater that now shows first-run movies and offers a stage for community events.

Even the city's development has become tied to its past as one of its newest subdivisions is on the former Fairvue plantation, incorporating its historic buildings into its design.

Work is continuing by city officials on how Gallatin will grow, particularly along the Nashville Pike corridor along its southern border with Hendersonville. The tree-lined entrance to the city has been the site of some of its finest homes, but change is bringing commercial development. Planners are working to blend residential and commercial without losing the corridor's atmosphere.

City officials are also working to improve the look around the heart of the city, its Public Square. Landscaping and walk-ability studies have been done on the downtown area to help revitalize the business district and preserve its history.
