Nolensville, Tennessee has attracted families for generations, not just for its beautiful landscape, but also for its convenient location, inclusion in Williamson County, and its low property tax rates. The storybook town makes you feel far from it all, but is just a few miles from Nashville, Franklin, and Smyrna, making it an easy commute in nearly any direction.

Being in Williamson County means that Nolensville residents have access to some of the best schools in the state. New elementary, middle, and high schools have recently opened, drawing in families looking for high-quality education. Farmhouses dot rolling hills and newer subdivisions with community amenities are scattered throughout the town, giving residents plenty of choices in their home search.

Stroll through downtown Nolensville and you’ll find quaint bed and breakfasts, antique shops with unique finds, and restaurants offering delicious southern fare. The Feed Mill is a must see and offers authentic Amish goods and foods. Stop in to do some shopping and grab lunch or some ice cream to go. Nolensville is home to the original Martin’s Barbecue, but be sure to stop by early, as they frequently run out of the favorites. Mill Creek Brewing Company hosts some great events in their taproom, and you can frequently find a great food truck inside for tasty bites to go with your beer.

The town is used to hosting guests as they pass through and plans several great annual parades and events such as their 4th of July fireworks show. The most popular of these is the Buttercup Festival held each spring and featuring arts and crafts, food, and games. 

The town offers several parks, soccer and baseball fields, and a dog park to help locals stay active. The Williamson county recreation center provides locals with great resources such as a wellness center, gymnasium, a pool, and fitness rooms.
