And you can still visit and enjoy the grounds and house of Traveller’s Rest in Oak Hill. Like many of the post-World War II neighborhoods around the city of Nashville, Oak Hill experienced a flux of new residents and building of homes in the years following the war. And in 1952, Oak Hill became incorporated, and it maintains its own municipal government, while it is administered under Metro Nashville. With easy access to the Tennessee state capital in downtown Nashville, Oak Hill houses the governor’s mansion. Additionally, the beautiful 1,317-acre Radner Lake State Natural Area, calls Oak Hill Home. It is a beautiful and peaceful location to have close to home.
