Inscription.  The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church was established on Nov. 4, 1917, at 208 6th Ave S., the former site of Wallace Univ. School. Greek immigrants began moving to Nashville in the 1880s in search of better economic opportunities. In 1905 a benevolent society was established - the Greek-American Mutual Help Association - which served as a religious and cultural center and raised funds for the purchase of the 6th Ave. property. In 1986, the church moved to 4905 Franklin Pike.
