Our History

Nashville, Georgia serves as the county seat of rural Berrien County, which is home to more than 19,000 residents. Small-town pride in its history is evidenced in the names of the downtown streets (all named after Revolutionary war generals and U.S. Presidents).

Incorporated on December 20, 1892, Nashville was named in honor of General Francis Nash, a distinguished Revolutionary War soldier. It is the site of the county courthouse, which was built in 1898 and is still in use today. The courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other incorporated towns in the county are Alapaha, Enigma, and Ray City.

Like so many other Southern towns, Nashville’s downtown is bustling with shops and restaurants within comfortable walking distance of one another. The downtown area hosts events throughout the year, keeping the town alive and full of energy!

Lovers of the great outdoors enjoy freshwater fishing, hunting, and camping at Patrick’s Paradise, along the Alapaha River, as well as in the area’s bountiful ponds and lakes. Berrien County’s Shadow Oak Plantation is the area’s hunting destination for exhilarating quail hunts.

Nashville was designated a Better Hometown Community in 2003 by the Department of Community Affairs. Since then, the downtown has experienced over 55 historic building rehabilitations. More info at berrienchamber.comberriencountyga.com or betterhometown.com.
