Bellevue Real Estate

Bellevue is a part of the city of Nashville, Tenn. Many people may remember the country song by Nashville songwriter, Tom T. Hall, called “Harper Valley P.T.A.” The school written about in the song is located in Bellevue, Tennessee. Years ago, the community existed to serve the many farms in the area. A Masonic hall, hardware store and a post office were the main buildings in the area, and were situated along the railroad tracks close to the Harpeth River.

Bellevue became “suburbanized” in the 1970s, when the U.S. Postal Service changed the postal designation of Bellevue to a branch of the Nashville Post Office, the Bellevue neighborhood sprang to life.

Bellevue Today

Bellevue today is one of the most densely populated communities in Davidson County, Tenn. It has been said that this is due to the high number of townhouses and condominiums in the area. It is also difficult to give any population figures that would be accurate for this area because there are no set, definable boundaries. But it is considered to be Nashville’s second largest suburb, after Antioch.

Most of Bellevue’s growth came in the 1960-1970s. This was due, in part, to the widening of U.S. Highway 70 South to four lanes, and the addition of regular bus service to downtown Nashville. This also led to a real estate boom in the area.
