Nashville is a tourist city with enough attractions to keep you busy for years. But if you take a moment to look beyond the neon lights and street musicians, you might find a few surprises. Here are a few Nashville sights you may have overlooked.
1. Fort Negley
Nashville played a big role in Civil War history. You can’t travel far in Nashville without finding a sign or memorial attributed to an important battle. But there is one site that is often overlooked, and it’s quite a bit larger than your average roadside sign.
In Feb. 1862, Confederate commanders abandoned Nashville to Union forces, who occupied the city and rapidly began building fortifications for its defense. Fort Negley, was the largest of these fortifications— a star-shaped structure constructed of limestone and located on a hill south of downtown.
2. The Tennessee State Museum
Speaking of rich history, the Tennessee State Museum holds the mother lode. It’s tucked safely in the bottom floor of the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and features everything from mastodon remains to original artifacts dating back to the Civil War.
3. The Night Market
We all love a sunny stroll through the Nashville Farmers’ Market, but did you know you can attend under the stars each month too? Every third Thursday the Nashville Famers’ Market hosts a Night Market with live music!
4. Demonbreun’s Cave
Have you noticed that big hole in the rock of the Cumberland River? That was once the home of Timothy Demonbreun, the “first citizen” of Nashville. He left his wealthy Canadian family to become a fur trader right here in Tennessee. He found that the Cumberland River attracted a great deal of game, so he shacked up in a cave on its banks while he built a home in what is now Nashville.
There are countless reasons to love Nashville, and now you have four more. These places are amazing, and better yet—they’re free! Spend some time getting to know more about the great city we live in.

As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with.

I will highly recommend this firm.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
