History of Nolensville, Tennessee

William and Sarah Nolen founded Nolensville in 1797. The legend is that their wagon wheel broke, stranding them in central Tennessee. When William saw the clear creek water and plentiful game, he decided his family should settle there. Along with his wife and five children, they built a log cabin where Nolan lived until his death. The legend lives on in the town’s Broken Wheel Festival and even the town logo which features a broken wheel.

The Nolen’s original log home was incorporated into another structure that eventually became the McCord House. The whole structure was moved to a new location in 2009. It is now preserved with part of the original Nolen house exposed, and visitors are welcome.

Many other historic buildings from the 1800s are still operating in the town. The Waller Funeral Home has operated in its location since 1876. Both the old creamery and mill are now home to retail stores. The downtown historic district features six buildings listed on the historic register.

The town was originally incorporated in 1839. It remained small, with less than 200 citizens, for decades. It was re-incorporated in 1996 after a referendum vote by the citizens, which has brought several thousand new residents.

 

Growth and Economy

Though Nolensville is still small, with a population of about 5,800, it has grown dramatically since its reincorporation in 1996. The town has nearly doubled in size at each census, expanding from only about 1,500 people in 1990 to its current size.

The influx of new residents has spurred a lot of new construction. Many Nolensville TN homes for sale are new, with 210 new building permits issued since 2010. These are largely located in developments. Nolensville, TN real estate taxes are the lowest in Williamson County, making it an attractive place to build.

The town carefully balances development with maintaining its historic nature. The Economic Development Committee for Nolensville works with residents to consider zoning changes, including what national stores to allow in to the town, where they will be located, and how they will impact existing local businesses. This has been especially important as Williamson Country grows around Nolensville.
