Old Hickory

The area that Old Hickory occupies was originally farmland during the 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1917, this site and adjacent land was purchased by the US Government for the construction of a gunpowder plant which was erected by the DuPont Company of Philadelphia. This plant was to produce smokeless gunpowder for the allied war effort during World War I. In March of 1918, ground was broken for the construction of the plant.

Today, the village remains as the only example of a planned company town in Middle Tennessee. There have been no major intrusions into the area and the streetscapes are much as they were back in 1918. Old Hickory is a unique historical and architectural resource of Tennessee
