1. Belle Meade Deer Park
Inscription.  Jackson Boulevard follows the contour of the 408-acre Belle Meade Plantation Deer Park, established by John Harding in 1833 or 1834. The park became a favorite picnic spot for Nashvillians. By 1854, it held approximately 200 deer and 14 buffalo. A few deer which survived the Civil War returned and rapidly multiplied. When the park closed in 1904, it held between 250 and 300 deer and a few elk.
