Proximity to Music City

Nashville logo - Music City

We're just a few short miles from Nashville, TN. Here's what we have that Nashville doesn't: Land (inexpensive), low cost of living, high quality of life.

Workforce

In the prime growth area of the county, there is a population of approximately 15,000 within a 15-minute drive. Both high schools have embraced Tennessee Promise in cooperation with a business-education council supported by Vision Hickman and the Hickman County Chamber of Commerce. Students actively embrace the concepts of mechatronics in addition to traditional college classes.

Quality of Life

Nothing quite compares to being able to listen to the calls of the Whip-poor-will birds in the evening without the background of traffic. The night sky is majestic absent the lights of the city. People are friendly with many able to live with unlocked doors in comfort. It's also nice to be able to visit the city for shopping quickly--and return home to a better way of life. Living in the backyard of Music City, USA, also means the sounds of authentic music often wafts through the air from homes and places where a few people gather to celebrate their heritage.

Transportation

Interstate 40 crosses the northern edge of Hickman County providing three points of entry/exit. State Route 840 also crosses the northern edge of the county as it connects I-40 with I-65 south of Nashville bypassing the congestion of the metro area with quick access to Franklin and points both east and south of Nashville. A short-line rail system passes through Hickman County connecting Dickson to Hohenwald.
