1. Germantown Marker
Inscription. European immigrants esablished Germantown, the first suburb in North Nashville, in the 1850s. Large bick townhouses stood next to modest workers' cottages, illustrating the area's economic and social diversity. World War I and changes in public attitude began decades of decline. Renovation projects at two historic churches began the neighborhood's revitalization in the 1970s. Germantown became a National Register Historic District in 1979.
