Middle Tennessee, Greater Nashville - They all sound good to me. We all know Nashville...Music City but where and what is Middle Tennessee?
Since moving here a number of years ago I remember everyone talking about Middle Tennessee, but I never really knew what that meant. Well it seems that Middle Tennessee, unlike geographic designations of regions in other states, has legal as well as socioeconomic meaning.
There are three Grand Divisions; Middle Tennessee, West Tennessee and East Tennessee, hence the three stars on the State Flag. According to the Tennessee State Constitution, no more than two of the state supreme court's five justices can come from any one Grand Division.
Middle Tennessee is the largest in area and least densely populated of the three Grand Divisions and consists of 41 counties. Major cities in the area are; the state capital Nashville; Clarksville (home to the 101st Airborne; Murfreesboro and Franklin.
Some say that Middle Tennessee is the prettiest of the three divisions; we just call it home. As soon as you travel the area you will fall in love with the rolling hills, rivers, vast farm land, and horse farms. It is here in Middle Tennessee that the Tennessee Walking Horse was breed.
Middle Tennessee is also a haven for higher education....once referred to as the Athens of the South. Nashville is home to such renowned universities as Vanderbilt, Belmont, Lipscomb, Fisk and Tennessee State. Other prominent universities are Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, the University of the South in Sewanee, Cumberland University in Lebanon, and Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, which is the state's second largest institution of higher learning, just behind the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
So check out homes here in Middle Tennessee and see what we mean when we say Tennessee sounds good to me.
