Inglewood was originally the site of large plantations in the 18th and 19th centuries. By the 20th century, it became the home of some of Nashville’s elite residents. Visitors can see a piece of this history by visiting the home of legendary country singer and musician Roy Acuff. This musician, the first person to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame while alive, lived in several homes in this community during his life, including the large estate at 3940 Moss Rose Drive.
