First settled in 1779, Nashville has grown into what the New York Times calls America’s “It City.” From frontier outpost to cosmopolitan city of today, Nashville has a rich history. Have you ever wandered through Nashville and wondered about the stories of the different buildings? Join local historian, author and retired Tennessee State Museum curator, James Hoobler, for a special lunchtime lecture and book signing to celebrate the release of his latest book, This Used To Be Nashville, out now from Reedy Press.
Hoobler brings together an impressive collection of stories of the highs and lows of the past in what is now one of the country’s most visited tourist destinations. You’ll never look at a building in Nashville the same way again.
This event is in-person in the Museum’s Digital Learning Center at 12:00 p.m. RSVPs via Eventbrite are recommended, but not required to attend this free event.
