Settled north of Nashville in 1782, Inglewood began as a farming community on the Cumberland River. Early prominent citizens built many grand homes in the area, including Weakley and Riverwood, which are still standing today. A new community called “Inglewood Place” began in 1908 and churches, schools, and businesses soon followed. Nearly 700 homes were built prior to 1940, but Inglewood saw its heyday following World War II as Nashville’s first modern suburb. Inglewood’s Isaac Litton High School was known throughout Middle Tennessee for its academic excellence, championship sports, and its renowned band, “The Marching 100.” Today people are moving back to Inglewood because of its history and beauty still reflected in the majestic Cumberland River, the numerous natural springs, and varied architecture.
Riverside Village (McGavock/Riverside) proudly calls the Inglewood neighborhood home. The unique development includes a coffee shop, Sip, Mitchell’s deli, Watanabe sushi, Castrillo’s pizza place, a salon and music school. The same intersection also has a doggy day-care, furniture thrift, soul food restaurant, and a guitar shop. Las Maracas, a popular Mexican restaurant is also a neighborhood favorite, located on Gallatin Road.
