We didn't have a whole lot of time, so we drove out to the tiny town of Nolensville, less than 30 minutes from home. 10 years ago, Nolensville was nothing more than a small area of decaying historic houses and rolling old farmland. But with the huge growth of nearby Brentwood and Williamson County, the town has grown exponentially. Gone are many of the farms in place of Publix grocery stores and cookie cutter subdivisions. But if you drive just past all that, the main town area still stands, albeit with a brand new, shiny Town Hall.
We stopped at the Nolensville Feed Mill where you can buy groceries, gifts and knick knacks. On Saturdays, they host Music at the Mill (the store backs up to Mill Creek) where you can eat their buffet-style Meat and Three while listening to musicians do some "pickin' and grinin'". When we were there, we were lucky enough to hear the super talented Mark Winchester, who we found out used to play upright bass with the Brian Setzer Orchestra.
Here are some pictures from our fun day:
