Nashville’s hippest, hottest destination for food, drink, shopping, music and fun is Edgehill Village. This Urban Village is just one block off Music Row, near Belmont University and Vanderbilt University.
The Village includes: a bakery, barber shop, coffee shop, restaurant, bubble tea shop, hair salon, skin care salon; clothing, gifts, patio & interior home furnishings, florist; pilates work out facility, custom jewellery design and manufacturing, and art gallery.
More new stores opening soon!
Along with all the places to shop – Edgehill Village is also home to some of the "Edgy-est" Loft Apartments around!
Looking at the history of Edgehill Village the whole area was restored from derelict buildings a decade ago.
More from across the pond soon!
This photo of Edge Hill Secondary Modern School for Boys was published in The Crest, Edge Hill’s magazine, in 1959. The school was built on the site of the original college in Durning Road.
According to this website the school opened in 1957:
There were Primary and Secondary schools. The Girls’ Secondary Modern was the first to close, in 1973, when it amalgamated with Newsham Secondary into Fairfield Secondary Modern. The Head, Miss C E WATSON, transferred to Fairfield. When it closed in 1982, the head of the infants was Mrs O B WALSH. She remained with Kensington Infants which used the old Edge Hill Secondary Girls’. The Boys’ Secondary school closed in 1982. Pupils were scattered, many of them going to New Heys. The Head, Mr A H THOMAS retired, and the building was used for a time as part of Old Swan Technical College.
It’s time to start a new series of posts that will run over the next few months. This one will look into some of the other Edge Hills and Edgehills that are out there. First up is one that regularly crops up on my Twitter search for “Edge Hill”, the song by popular beat combo Groove Armada.
According to Wikipedia (so it must be true, right?) Edge Hill is from the 2001 album Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) and featured in the Tomb Raider movie.
You might be able to find the song on YouTube but since they’re of questionable legality I’ll just link through to the Spotify track – contact me if you want an invite.
