History

Settlement of territory in and around Nashville started with the purchase of land from indigenous people under the Treaty of Fort Wayne in 1809, and was expanded with further purchases under the Treaty of St. Mary’s in 1818. Established in 1836 by Banner C. Brummet, a county agent, the town was originally named Jacksonburg. In 1830, the entire county’s estimated population was 150. In 1837, the first Nashville courthouse was built, and a jail was constructed that same year. Area population had increased to 2,364 by 1840. In 1872, Nashville was officially incorporated. At the start of the century, excessive logging in the region had substantial deforestation which resulted in great erosion crisis. The population decreased over the period of several decades and didn’t regain the level it had in 1890 until almost a century later in 1980.

In the early 20th century, some artists stayed in Nashville, including notable American impressionist painter T.C. Steele. These artisans were the foundation for the Brown County Art Colony (now the Brown County Art Guild).

Area and Climate

The town of Nashville is located in Washington Township, Brown County, IN. As of the 2010 census, there are 803 people living in the area. Nashville is Brown County’s county seat and is the only town in the county that is incorporated. It is well known as a tourist destination and the heart of the Brown County Art Colony.

The ridges, valleys and rolling hills are a tale of Salt Creek’s north fork. The neighboring hills are made of shale, sandstone and siltstone. These sedimentary rocks were set down in a prehistoric river delta called the Borden delta, just like the present Mississippi River delta. Jackson Branch Creek (to the west), Salt Creek (to the south) and Greasy Creek (to the east) have cut down through the nearby land to give the town its rolling hills.

Nashville experiences 41 inches of rainfall annually (U.S. median is 37), while snowfall is 19 inches per year (U.S. median is 25). The average sunny days yearly in Nashville are 190. The lowest temperature is in January, at 21° F, while the highest temperature is in July, at around 88° F.

Lifestyle and Things to Do

The Brown County Playhouse in Little Nashville has come back as an outstanding entertainment spot. This year, it is expected for the Little Nashville Opry to be rebuilt. The Palace Theater is going to be re-opened as a dinner theater in the old Ordinary. The Handbell Choir and Melchior Marionette Show have been providing entertainment to visitors for many years.

Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the 18-hole course at Salt Creek Golf Resort, and for some smoke-free fun, visitors can check out the Dance Barn. Paintball Valley and Rawhide Ranch provide thrilling adventures, including zip lines and paintball for teens. Lake Monroe Reservoir, Yellowwood State Forest and Brown County State Park offer all-ages outdoor activities. The Bill Monroe Bluegrass Park features nationally famous celebrities throughout the bluegrass music festival months.

Just like Las Vegas and Gatlinburg, Brown County, Indiana has become a wedding destination and boasts outdoor gazebos and wedding chapels. Those who are planning to tie the knot can do so indoors at the Abbey Chapel, or outdoors close to Brown County State Park. The reception can take place at Mike’s Music and Dance Barn or Salt Creek Golf Resort, and then followed by honeymoon in a private cabin or romantic hot tub room.
