Hendersonville, TennesseeÖ city of Industry, opportunity... and mostly white people. Get to know this North-Nashville diamond in the rough. Just 15 minutes from downtown Nashville, unless itís rush hour, obviouslyÖ then itís 15 minutes to the Vietnam Veterans exchange and then another 45 minutes to the first Hendersonville exit 2 miles away. What makes Hendersonville so awesomeóbesides having a name thatís 37 characters long? Where do I start? Reason #1, and perhaps most importantly, Hendersonvilleís chief selling point is that itís not Gallatin. If youíre not sure what that means, youíre either from Gallatin, or new to Hendersonville. Reason #2, Hendersonville has the highest per capita of all the cities in Middle Tennessee of restaurants that used to be other restaurants. We have this Mexican place that used to be a Shoneys, in the same shopping center as the Applebeeís that got turned into a Tilted Kilt. Thereís Yokahama, which clearly used to be a Hardeeís or some similar fast food chain. Barefoot Charlies showed up where Sputkniks used to be afterÖ wellÖ if youíre new to town, maybe itís just best you donít knowÖ Also, you might not know it to see it if youíre just passing through, but this McDonaldísÖ. just a few short months ago, was an entirely different McDonalds. Crazy. Third on the list of reasons why Hendersonville is awesome? Diversity in leisure activities. Sure, we have golf and booze, just like any lake town, but tell me what other near-Nashville community has combinations of recreational activities like: Tying up a bleep-ton of boats just for the hell of it. Postponing our childrenís education so we can play politics. Larping. Waiting for the fucking geese to cross the road. Reason FouróHendersonville has three of the nationís top ten deadliest intersections. Now thatís bad, in that you might die, but itís also good, I think, because itís interesting. The worst is clearly Walton Ferry and Main Streetóoh and Old Shackle Island Road! If youíre coming from either side street, be prepared to wait the length of at least three Oak Ridge Boys songs for the light to turn in your favor. If youíre on Old Shackle, and happen to need guitar strings or scuba diving gear, you probably have time to grab them before the light changes. If youíre on Walton Ferry, consider popping into Jersey MikeísÖ depending on what day you go in, they sometimes have specials where the sandwiches are tax free. Reason #5, proximity to Rivergate. Reason 6, Everyone in Hendersonville has rescued at least one turtle, and none of us will shut the bleep up about it. Never in history has a sub-culture been so proud of such a specific collective environmental effort. Vietnam Veterans Blvd., or ìthe bypass,î as itís called by people who have never been to a real city. Itís a fantastic road, actually, particularly if your life consists solely of going from Hendersonville to Nashville and back in a hurry. If you want to go North from Hendersonville, wellÖ youíll need to get off Vietnam Vets at Conference Drive, go North a mile or so, then go left on Long Hollow, and then right to the onramp to 65 North. But itís not that big a deal, because who the bleep wants to go North? Listen, in the world of I65 North, Hendersonville is really the last stop of awesome on a long, lonely highway to despair and Indiana. Reason 7, No Dunkin Donuts. Because who likes amazing coffee and donut/pastry products? Only bleeps, thatís who. If you want Dunkin, youíll have to brave the drive to Goodlettsville or (shudder) Gallatin, and then donít let anyone in a four mile radius of a Shipleys see you, or youíll catch hell for being a traitor. Reason 8, Indian Lake Villageóthe Streets of Indian Lakeówhatever the bleep they call this place these days. Itís awesome. And if you look up awesome in the dictionary, thereís a picture of a half empty outdoor mall with a centerpiece restaurant thatís been vacant for over a year. But movies! Reason 9, Easy navigation. Itís pretty bleeping hard to get lost in Hendersonville. Itís like a super tall tree. Thereís basically this one main road. And it goes in a long straight line. And every other part of the city is a branch off that one main road. Now that road sometimes called Main Street. Or Gallatin Road. Or Gallatin Pike, but only by people who used to live in either Gallatin or East Nashville. Or US-31, by complete newbies like yourself. Nevermind. I was wrong. Itís totally easy to get lost in this town. There are only 9 reasons Hendersonville is awesome. Hendersonville is superiority without the smugness. When you live in Hendersonville, youíre part of one of the higher middle levels of societyís importance structure. Which is to say, youíre middle class, baby, and probably even upper middle class. Booya. But you wonít feel the need to be cocky about it like someone from Franklin or Thomsonís Station. Youíre superior enough to be cool, but average enough not to let it go to your head. And when youíre out and about in north Nashville and the surrounding areas, you donít need to look down your nose at non-Hendersonvillians, because they already know. You rule. When you live in Hendersonville, you can hold your head high, especially whenever youíre in Gallatin.



Hendersonville was settled circa 1784 by Daniel Smith when he began work on his Rock Castle.[15]

In 1790, William Henderson settled in Sumner County and later became the namesake of the town. It was a trading center for the county, which was devoted to the production of tobacco and hemp as commodity crops, and blood livestock: both horses and cattle. During the Civil War, Monthaven was used as a field hospital.[citation needed] In the late 20th century, this historic home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 1901, when the small city was incorporated, it had roughly 250 residents and was led by L.H. "Dink" Newman.[16]

With the completion of the Old Hickory Dam in 1954, Hendersonville started to develop more rapidly, as the lake attracted sportsmen and people seeking recreation. Since the late 20th century, it has become the most-populous city of Sumner County, and one of the most populous suburbs of Nashville, along with Franklin and Murfreesboro.[16] The city contains around 0.7% of the population of Tennessee.[citation needed]


Hendersonville is governed by a board of 12 aldermen and a mayor, known as the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA).[17][18] The aldermen are elected by district for staggered terms of four years. The mayor is elected once every four years by the whole city.[citation needed]

Flood scare

In 2007 a risk was identified that the trouble-prone Wolf Creek Dam in the neighboring state of Kentucky might break, which could have resulted in a complete inundation for the lower lying parts of Hendersonville.[citation needed] Since then, extensive repairs have been performed on the dam, and the maximum level of water behind it has been lowered, thus reducing the pressure of water on the structure and resolving the identified flood risk.[citation needed]


Hendersonville is located at 36°18′00″N 86°36′22″W / 36.300084°N 86.606109°W / 36.300084; -86.606109 (36.300084, −86.606109).[19]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 32.9 square miles (85 km2), of which 27.3 square miles (71 km2) is land and 5.6 square miles (15 km2) (16.93%) is water.


Hendersonville has a humid subtropical climate.

The members serve staggered four-year terms; the Director serves under contract with the Board of Education. The board conducts monthly meetings that are open to the public. The school system’s General Purpose School Fund budget during the 2013-14 school year was approximately $203 million.
