The East End neighborhood is the smallest historic neighborhood in East Nashville. It covers the area north to south from Woodland Street to Shelby Street and 10th Street to 14th east to west.
Established in 1876, the East End is home to some of the most beautiful Victorian craftsman homes in the Nashville area. Visitors to the area will see exquisite examples of Queen Anne homes, Bungalows and Eastlake architecture. One of the oldest residences in the East End is the Eastlake Victorian home designed and built for Hugh Carhart Thompson, the architect who designed Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Other architectural designs common in the East End include Italianate, Stick Style, Romanesque Revival, and American Four Square.
In addition to the historic architecture in Nashville’s East End, the community also supports one of the newest hot spots in East Nashville, the 5-Points Shopping District. 5-Points is named for the shape of the intersection of Woodland and 11th Street. Over time independent businesses, restaurants and nightclubs have positioned themselves around this street corner. Some of the most popular eateries at the 5-Points are Batter’D and Fried Boston Seafood, the Pied Piper Creamery and Edgefield Restaurant. Trendy shops like Wags and Whiskers, Hip Zipper and The Green Wagon are also located at 5-Points.
Residents of the East End have easy access to downtown Nashville and other main Nashville arteries via Woodland Street, Main Street, the Union Street Bridge and the James Robertson Parkway. All of these routes help make the East End neighborhood a desirable place to live if commuting to points in and around the city.
