Long Description:

Old Hickory Triangle

Davidson County Marker # 110

Text: “This intersection, known as “The Triangle,” served as the commercial core of Old Hickory from the 1920s through the 1940s. A variety of shops were located here, including a grocery, bank, general store, barber shop, restaurants, and doctors’ offices, as well as the bus station and YMCA. The Public Works Administration built the Colonial Revival Post Office in 1934-35.”

Erected 2002

The marker is pretty easy to get to. It is literally in a triangle formed by intersecting roads, and is also near a veterans' memorial. There is plenty of public parking near the marker, and the little neighborhood is nice, especially in regards to traffic.
