Once abandoned and overgrown with weeds, Marathon Village is now a booming national tourist destination and home of the original Marathon Motor Car factory. The factory and surrounding buildings were built between circa 1881 and 1912 with differing styles of architecture. Several original Marathon Cars can be viewed inside the car museum. The village is an example of adaptive reuse of historic Nashville structures and houses various local businesses including an art gallery, a coffee shop, boutiques, a brewery and taproom, and the popular Antique Archaeology store. Join Historic Nashville members for a behind-the-scenes exclusive tour with the owner and savior of the now-restored historic property, Barry Walker.
