Mike Wolfe joined HNI representatives to reveal the Nashville Nine properties and to underscore how vital preservation is in maintaining Nashville’s unique character.

Since 2009, Historic Nashville has published the annual Nashville Nine, a list of the city’s historic properties endangered by demolition, neglect or development. Every year the Nashville Nine is compiled through a public nomination process revealing historic buildings and places that matter to the people of our city.
Since the program’s inception, Historic Nashville has brought to the public’s attention a wide variety of the city’s endangered landmarks, including historic houses, park buildings, civic landmarks, commercial buildings, neighborhood schools, churches and even neon signs. These properties represent a range of historic time periods, architectural styles and building types that embody Nashville and Davidson County’s rich cultural history.
