"Good Nature, Good Schools, Great Town"

Around here Hendersonville is perhaps better known as the home of the late, great Johnny Cash whose family home sat on the banks of the lake at the end of a long private drive. Now with an entire road named for him in the town, it is difficult to think of it without also remembering the legacy of the man who put this place on the map. But on the map it is, now known as the fastest growing community in all of Tennessee. With 26 miles of lake front property, great public schools, and excellent sense of community and other music stars making their homes there, it is not difficult to see what it would be a popular choice. Hendersonville is located in Sumner county, but is only 20 miles North of the International Airport at Nashville and 18 miles North of downtown, but the landscape, pace of life and air you breathe could easily lead you to believe that you are an entire world away. Aside from the great public schools there is also the well-respected Pope John Paul II, which interacts in both sports and academics with local Nashville schools. The median income is higher than the state average here, as is the average education level, making it an affluent small town on the shores of a beautiful lake only miles away from a great Southern City. What more could you want?
