Home to Syndey's Bluff and Cheatham Lock & Dam, Ashland City was could have been named one of two ways: either after Henry Clay's "Ashland" estate or through the General Assembly of Tennessee in 1859, mainly inspired by all of the luscious ash trees in the area. The town is 25 minutes northwest from the center of downtown Nashville, and its most famous landmark is Samual Watson's grist and powder mill along Sycamore Creek, though no longer in operation. Not only is the community drenched in Civil War history, it also offers several options to enjoy, including Cheatham Wildlife Management Area, Riverbluff Park, Bull Ron Recreation Area, Sycamore Square, the Main Street strip and some of the most friendly neighbors in Tennessee. This 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom log cabin near the river may be the true instinct of your nature, especially if you're the outdoorsy type!
More of an urbanite? The skyline is just around the bend.
