Historic Nashville is happy to announce that the Anne and Mignon Nixon and Clark Family Trust donated a Preservation Easement for the historic Betty Nixon House near Hillsboro Village, forever saving the landmark from demolition. Owned by former Metro Councilwoman and preservationist Betty Nixon from 1971-2016, the nearly 100-year old home marks the 18th easement donated to HNI. Located at 1607 18th Avenue South, the Colonial Revival-style home was constructed of hand-laid stone in 1925 for Thomas O. Bagley, a local cotton merchant. The property was also owned by Mrs. Elsie Caldwell Buntin from 1951-1971 and by John Trice Nixon, a U.S. district judge, and his wife Betty Chiles Nixon, a well-known neighborhood leader who represented District 18 on the Metro Council from 1975-1987, and twice ran for mayor. This house served as headquarters for Nixon’s political campaigns. “We are thrilled that the house is to be protected in perpetuity through a preservation easement,” stated Mignon and Anne Nixon. “And, we are profoundly grateful to Historic Nashville for helping secure this tangible legacy of our mother’s extraordinary life and commitment to Nashville’s neighborhoods.” “We are grateful to be involved in helping preserve this beautiful architectural landmark, which helps tell the story of women’s history in Nashville,” stated HNI president Jenn Harrman. “Betty Nixon was a longtime leader in the local preservation movement, and we are honored to help preserve her legacy.” #KeepNashvilleUnique #ThisPlaceMatters

ICYMI... U2's new album has some Belmont connections! Paul Nelson, a 2002 Belmont alumni, served as contractor/leader, while Avery Bright, a 2014 alumni, played the violin and Craig Nelson, a Belmont adjunct faculty member, played string bass.

    Part of U2's new album was secretly made in Brentwood
    CLOSE Over the last year, in a home recording studio just down the street from the public library in Brentwood, U2's latest album, "Songs of Experience," has been coming together. Don't worry - you didn't miss your chance to see Bono at Puffy Muffin.

    More craft burgers? Hopdoddy stands out from the competition
    CLOSE In this burger-rich town, I confess I've become a little jaded when it comes to the prospect of a new burger-centric joint. But my curiosity was piqued when I heard about the "Impossible Burger," one of the specialties of Hopdoddy Burger Bar, the Austin Texas-based craft burger-and-beer restaurant recently opened in Hillsboro Village.
