  • Guide To: Crieve Hall Neighborhood in Nashville, TN

Crieve Hall is diverse in every way: the residents, the homes, and the surrounding area. Find the Nashville Zoo to the north and attend one of its many animal-themed events, shop at nearly every store imaginable in Brentwood to the south, and explore nature to the west in Radnor Lake State Park

This area was the home of Joel Cheek, Maxwell House founder, in the late 1800’s; and the name Crieve Hall was the name of his daughter’s home on his land. The property was later subdivided in the 1950s, which is why you’ll mostly find brick ranch style homes originating from that time, today. 

Wake up on Saturday and snap up breakfast from Crieve Hall Bagel Company before you head to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, when the crowds are minimal and the weather is beautiful. Capture breathtaking views of animals from all over the world, many endangered or protected, who find refuge there. End the day with shopping just down the road, or hop on your bike to enjoy Seven Mile Creek Greenway in style. 

Whatever you love, Crieve Hall has something nearby to satisfy. While the area itself is primarily residential, it’s only 15 minutes to the heart of downtown and much quicker to many great restaurants and amenities.
