Spring Hill in Maury County, Tennessee — The American South (East South Central)
The Town of Spring Hill, Tennessee
Intersection of Main Street and Depot Street
c. late 1800s
In 1935 the Tennessee Children's Home opened in Spring Hill. In 1938 a disastrous fire destroyed the entire business district on the eastern side of town, and another conflagration in 1940 damaged much of the western business district. A tornado in January 1963 also devastated the community. The town's population had remained steady at approximately 1,200 between 1900 and 1989. The opening of the Saturn Automobile Company in 1989 has resulted in great growth in Spring Hill, which is expected to continue into the 21st century.
