Located a few miles from downtown, North Nashville is a neighborhood steeped in rich history. Home to three historically black universities, Fisk University with its famed art galleries and Fisk Jubilee Singers, Meharry Medical College, and Tennessee State University, North Nashville has long been the hub of the city's black community. Jefferson Street is known for its musical past, once the epicenter of Nashville's thriving R&B and jazz scene. Today, visitors can explore the shops, bars, and restaurants lining Buchanan Street. A newer point of interest, this area of the neighborhood has seen a surge of development in recent years.
