Welcome to Forest Hills

A wealthy town in Southwest Davidson County.
Much like its neighbor Oak Hill, this town has a history that dates back to the 1700s and is full of Native American history and Civil War-era remnants. Dating back to the 15th century, when Native Americans were present in the area, the village of Aaittafama’, now being preserved as an archaeological park in the area. The area also played a role in the Civil War with the 1864 Battle of Nashville, where part of the Richland Country Club now sits today. The local history is evident throughout the town, especially with a trip to City Hall. 
Since this town has one commercial property within its city limits, it’s an ideal town for privacy and a true sense of community. With large, rolling hills that give way to spacious lots full of trees and stunning homes, there is beauty everywhere. Homes in the area range from quaint, charming ranches to grand, elegant estates with many private amenities, with the latter being more prominent.
