Neighborhood Profile: Melrose

Melrose lies within the Berry Hill area, but you know how Nashvillians love to name their neighborhoods! Melrose is bordered by 8th Avenue South, Wedgewood, Kirkwood, and Franklin Pike.


History and What It Has to Offer


The Melrose neighborhood’s name came from the large estate built in the mid-nineteenth century. The name Melrose was given to honor the family’s Scottish heritage. Unfortunately, the estate house was lost to a fire in 1975. It has long been an eclectic neighborhood, historic paired with modern, bringing us Zanie’s, the Adventure Science Center, and art galleries to explore.
