Hendersonville, TN

   Hendersonville has a population of 40,537. When Old Hickory Dam was built in the 1950s, Hendersonville suddenly became the City by the Lake. And since that time, Old Hickory Lake has been at the heart of much of the city's fortunes and identity.

Attracted by Hendersonville's scenic lakefront property, many country music stars, such as Johnny Cash and the Oak Ridge Boys, decided to make Hendersonville their home. The city still boasts some luxurious lakefront homes and bountiful recreational opportunities thanks to Old Hickory Lake.

Hendersonville also has tried to build upon its proximity to Nashville to attract families. The construction of Vietnam Veterans Boulevard in the 1980s provided easier access to Nashville for thousands of the city residents who commute daily to Davidson County for their jobs.

The city is hoping several road construction projects scheduled to start in the next few years will not only help residents travel more easily through the city but also attract more businesses to Hendersonville. Among them is the Indian Lake Boulevard extension project, which should open up land for office and commercial development close to the center of the city and Vietnam Veterans Boulevard.
