Explosive Growth

Explosive Residential Growth

The fastest-growing city in Tennessee is Spring Hill, as determined by BusinessWeek.com. Jobs increased 183% in 2009 - 2010 and again by 195% in 2010 - 2011.

The reasons behind this growth ensure longer-term additions of residents and commercial businesses to the middle of the 21st century.

Much growth can be attributed to a General Motors Saturn plant, but this factory closed in November 2009. GM is still hiring in this metro area, however, and the city continues to grow.

The successes of business incentives to attract new business owners to choice real estate just 30 miles from Nashville are responsible for more of the growth, including the large Port Royal Place commercial development.

Historical Attractions

Spring Hill grew up around a few log cabins and a Methodist campground, later becoming the scene of a Civil War battle in the autumn of 1864.

Approximately 900 Union and Confederate soldiers died in the historic Battle of Spring Hill, more casualties suffered by the Confederacy. This was a huge battle in which over 30,000 individuals fought by the end of that day. The Spring Hill battlefield is commemorated with local museum exhibits and Civil War reenactments, visited by many tourists and history enthusiasts. A recognized state and national historical place, this battlefield is maintained to honor the 11/29/1864 event by the Association for Preservation of Civil War Sites, which also protects the nearby Battle of Franklin site.

Before European settlement in the South, the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Shawnee Nations inhabited the lands of Tennessee. After the Revolutionary War, three American soldiers received land grants in the area and the three tracts of land joined at the intersection of what is now Duplex Road, Old Military Road, and US 31/I-65. A few log cabins were built in 1808-09 and a road was requested in 1810 by Columbia TN residents in order to gain easier access to the so-called Tanyard Spring village cotton gin.

Schools and churches followed, as well as the Methodist campground after 1819. People traveled from miles around to attended the traditional Camp Meetings still held in the South today. In 1824, Henry Wade purchased Tanyard Spring and sold lots on US 31 (then just “Main St.”) in the town that became Spring Hill in 1825. Later the 19th Century, many of the Native Americans were relocated to the West, although some remained.

In addition to the yearly Civil War Battlefield remembrance activities and July 4th Celebrations, Spring Hill is home to an annual Country Ham Festival each fall and yearly Christmas celebrations.

A variety of museums and recognized historic places are located around Spring Hill, while Nashville offers another wide range of events and activities. Native American cultural and historical significance are also celebrated in the area. Green spaces and outdoor recreation are abundant.

      @Kim Bryan- Thanks for giving us so much Tennessee information. It is encouraging to see a state thrive so vividly, growing and making people happy! You must love it.

      Patty, most people in the hospitality industry in Tennessee will tell you they are overwhelmed with tourists wanting to know where best to possibly catch a glimpse of one of the show's actors performing, dining, or shopping - just as much as they ask about the actual country stars! And yes, Nashville artists in all forms are in very high demand. The show has made struggling artists and small venues very hip which has given many talented, otherwise unnoticed people the attention they deserve.

      So yes, the show Nashville has most certainly played a huge role but I think the greatest appeal is no state income tax and low cost of living. Otherwise, they'd just visit and go home and only those associated with hospitality would benefit. Yet Tennessee is flourishing as a whole.

      I've been most intrigued by the recent Nashville and surrounding counties real estate explosion. It's not uncommon for a house to be listed for less than 24 hours before selling - at asking price or above! That's amazing!

      Thanks for the good word, Kim! I have an acquaintance in Tennessee that has as much work in art and music as she can handle. Do you think the TV show Nashville has helped the state? Thanks for chiming in with a good comment!

      Tennessee is booming as a whole but cities such as Spring Hill and Murfreesboro are exploding. Definitely no lack of work in this state for the willing.

      Excellent hub! Wonderfully informative!

      That's right and I think it closed already, end of 2009. Apparently, a number of retail businesses are taking up or will take up the slack. Thanks for your question, nicomp!

      Isn't Spring Hill the site of the Saturn plant that will be closing soon?
