National Trust for Historic Preservation, MIC Document Music Row’s Historical Significance

national trust for historic preservation logo1The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Music Industry Coalition (MIC) have partnered to unveil a presentation on plans for the development of a definitive, in-depth research document on the Music Row area’s history. The presentation, which is open to the public, has been set for April 2.

During the event, Doug Sloan (Metro Planning Department deputy director) will discuss the Music Row Design Plan, while Tim Walker (Metro Historical Commission executive director) will discuss assistance in designating local landmarks on Music Row.

The study aims to identify and explain the significance of 400 buildings in the Music Row area, and represents a comprehensive inventory and documentation of the Nashville area. The study will be used to inform Metro Planning Department’s recently announced Music Row Design Plan, as well as new street signage and tours to tell the history of the Music Row area. The report is slated to be completed by fall 2015.

The public hearing will take place April 2, 2015 from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at The Quonset Hut, located at 34 Music Sq. E. in Nashville.
