  1. where is the history for black people in nashville

    1. There are a few posts directly concerning the African-American community on this site. Many of the posts are general and have information remembered by all Nashvillians. Is there something in particular you would like for me to research? If you want to read about African-American history in Nashville, I suggest you read The African-American History of Nashville, Tennessee, 1780 1930, by Dr. Bobby Lovett. It is well researched, well written, and gives a broad view of Nashville's past.

  2. Do you have any history on the old Viadock that went over the railroad tracks from Spring St. To Main St.

    1. I put this together for you on the Meridian Street Viaduct.

  3. I just came across you blog and it is great! Thank you!
