Selling William Edmondson home site 'a catastrophe for Nashville' | Opinion

He lived and worked in the Edgehill Neighborhood at 1434 14th Ave South for his whole career. He made all of his art on that site. He entertained artists and writers from all over the country there.

    Selling William Edmondson home site 'a catastrophe for Nashville' | Opinion
    As a scholar and professor of American art history, currently at work on a book on William Edmondson, I wish to express my dismay over current plans to sell the public lands that comprise the Edgehill Community Memorial Garden and the Murrell School.

He instead suggested the sale of a different property — 501 Interstate Boulevard near Nolensville Pike, which sits atop a hill with great views of downtown. The city uses the land to park school buses.

The sale of the former fire hall involves 0.87 acres of prime real estate in the middle of Green Hills at 2025 Richard Jones Road

On the same night as the Murrell school meeting last week, Murphy held a separate meeting on the future of the public works facility at 3800 Charlotte Avenue. She said the neighborhood is still reviewing what it would like to see at the site.

    Updates and Events/Meetings for May 4-11

This is particularly disappointing to District 17, which voted to support the transit plan. But we will go back to work and continue to seek solutions to a transportation problem that is not going away.
