About four miles southwest of downtown Nashville are the adjacent neighborhoods of Richland and Cherokee Park, which are located between I-440 and Cherokee Road, and bordered by West End Avenue on the south. Public transit, accessibility to I-440, and close proximity to downtown add to the geographical convenience of these neighborhoods.
Richland’s early 1900s foursquare, bungalow and cottage homes have been meticulously restored, with the Richland and Central Avenue homes dating back to 1905-1910. Most of the 300 homes in Cherokee Park were built between 1920 and 1950, a good deal of which are in the architectural styles of Tudor Revival, Colonial Revival and Bungalows. Some of the homes originally built as duplexes have since been converted to single-family homes.
Residents of these neighborhoods are committed to preserving the historic integrity of the homes and community spirit. These neighborhoods are almost entirely residential, but plenty of restaurants, shops and parks, such as Elmington Park just across West End Avenue, are on the outskirts.
