Historic Tours

Historic Nashville, Inc. Tours We regularly offer historic and behind the scenes tours for our members and the public. Check our News & Events pages for an up-to-date listing of available tours.

Civil Rights Tour This walking and driving tour created by HNI provides the locations and history of places that played a key role in Nashville’s Civil Rights Movement. These places included churches, schools, universities, commercial buildings, recreational facilities and other types of properties. The identification of these places provides a direct physical connection to the past and helps people understand how local civil rights activists worked to promote a free and just society in Nashville.

Nashville Sites A major new program funded and sponsored by the Metro Historical Commission Foundation, Nashville Sites focuses on incorporating scholarly research with historic sites in Nashville with delivery available on all devices: mobile, tablet, and desktop. The tours are pre-planned and based on themes, but participants have the opportunity to customize their experience based on their interests—providing an individualized adventure-style experience.

There are over 150 metro markers, over 50 more state and nationally designated and recognized historic markers, sites, buildings, and districts in Metro Nashville. Points to be included for this project range from the earliest known business to the Ryman Auditorium to historical churches to government buildings. NashvilleSites.org will make the offline world more interesting and relevant by augmenting Nashville’s history with multimedia information and other online resources. This project is designed to provide an expansive range of walking, and ultimately driving, tours that guide the user throughout the city and provide credible and accessible information, images, and audio. As a city known to promote both tradition and progress, tours are based on a wide range of themes that focus on Nashville’s history and culture: celebrations and conflicts, accomplished women and men, landmarks and hidden histories. Let the journey begin.
