Historic Bartlett is part of the city of Bartlett, once a stagecoach stop between Memphis and Nashville in the 1860s and formerly known as Union Depot. Beginning with the advent of the railroad, the city has grown into the thriving Tennessee community it is today with its own government offices on Stage Road. Since it adjoins Memphis which, incidentally, records more sunny days each year than Miami, Bartlett shares the area’s balmy weather and offers 24 parks for residents to enjoy the outdoors. In fact, the city with its well-kept neighborhoods was ranked among the top 100 places to live in the U.S. by CNN and Money Magazine.
Retail and service shops, places to dine in Bartlett Station, a performance arts center, library and various schools lie within the boundaries of the community. The Bartlett Museum in the Gotten House, displays period furniture and other treasures preserved from the rich history. Cedar Hall on Broadway Road is the oldest building in the city; both this and the Gotten House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Architecturally, a mix of centuries defines the style of homes in Historic Bartlett.
