Wedgewood Houston is one of Nashville’s most sought-after urban areas, sitting just a short drive from other trendy neighborhoods such as the Gulch or 12 South. WeHo, as the area has been coined, has developed a unique identity, attracting artists, foodies, history enthusiasts, music lovers, and families. Watch our Local’s Guide to Wedgewood Houston video to take a look at this wonderful community!
Art galleries, mixed-art collaborative spaces, and recording studios give a distinctly original feel to this well-established neighborhood. This creativity has also found its way into the residential areas where you can find a mix of new homes and remodeled vintage charmers full of character. Condos and townhomes are also making their way into the mix as former factories are converted into industrial living and commercial spaces for those craving a live/work community.
Foodies will not have a hard time finding a variety of delicious delicacies in the cafes, restaurants, and bars that call Wedgewood Houston home. New places are opening constantly and are all just a few steps from your door. Jackalope Brewery has expanded here and Diskin opened the city’s first cidery, adding to the bars and distilleries already calling WeHo home.
Nearby, the Adventure Science Center is a must-see for any Nashvillian and makes for a fun but educational day. There are always events going on at the neighboring fairgrounds including flea markets, art exhibits, and races. The new soccer stadium rounds out the list of Nashville’s pro sports teams.
Filled with character, creativity, and convenience that can’t be matched, Wedgewood Houston is emerging as one of the top neighborhoods in Nashville. While revitalization has propelled this community to the top, you won’t have to look far for the historic character that first attracted residents and the industrial aesthetic that draws newcomers looking for something uniquely urban. If you’re craving an environment that cultivates innovation while preserving the past, look no further.
