3. Donelson

Donelson is named after John Donelson. John Donelson and James Robertson are the two men who are credited for settling Nashville. He was also the father-in-law of Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States.  This area of town really grew after World War II and then again with its proximity to Nashville’s airport. Of note, the oldest neighborhood in Donelson is Bluefields, developed by the Bransford Realty Company in the 1930s. Bransford also developed Belle Meade Links and sections of Green Hills during this same time period.
