Nashville’s history began over 200 years ago. The settlement was named after Revolutionary War hero, General Francis Nash. Fort Nashborough remains on the bank of the Cumberland River. Visitors can view the reproduction of the 1780 fort with its blockhouses and stockade. After ten years as a settlement, Nashborough became known as Nashville.
In 1892, the Ryman Auditorium started as a church funded by riverboat captain Thomas Ryman. The Ryman is a famous National Historic Landmark that later became a theater, drawing performers like Mae West, Enrico Caruso, Orson Welles, and Katherine Hepburn. The 2,300-seat auditorium contains its original church pews, and its acoustics are comparable to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Ryman remains a popular spot for concerts. Every performer and musical act at the Ryman Auditorium is recorded and displayed in a collection of framed posters.
