About This Spot

Scarritt Bennett Center is Nashville's premiere urban conference and retreat center. Located on ten peaceful acres, Scarritt Bennett offers unparalleled conference and retreat services, catering services, wedding services, and affordable overnight accommodations. Scarritt Bennett is located in historic midtown, off Music Row and next to Vanderbilt University. Listed on the National Historic Registry, the campus is within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, music venues, and famous Nashville attractions. Campus is also a 5-minute walk to a bus stop, easily accessible via a cab/Lyft/Uber, a 5-minute drive from downtown Nashville, and a 15-minute drive from the airport. Built in 1924 as Scarritt College, a missionary training school for women, today Scarritt Bennett is committed to empowerment through cross-cultural understanding, education, creativity, and spiritual enrichment.
