Bill Miller Adds Southern Turf Building To Nashville Real Estate Holdings

Bill Miller closed on the historic Southern Turf building in Nashville yesterday (Sept. 26), marking his fourth acquisition in the downtown area in the last three years. The four-story building located at 222 Fourth Avenue North is on the National Register of Historic Places because of its location in Printers Alley Historic District. Built in 1895, this Queen Anne-style building was built by bookmaker Marcus Cartwright  and over the years was home to saloons, gambling halls and the former home of The Tennessean newspaper.

“Today we take ownership of the legendary Southern Turf building; one of the most aesthetically-significant, architectural Crown Jewels in downtown Nashville,” says Miller. “It’s a pleasure and an honor to add this important property to our portfolio.”

The Southern Turf building currently houses Miller’s latest business acquisition, Skull’s Rainbow Room, in which he acquired a majority interest in June. This acquisition brings Miller’s holdings to 73,872 square feet of commercial property in downtown Nashville.

Miller’s Icon Entertainment Group also owns and operates the Johnny Cash Museum, Patsy Cline Museum, Nudie’s Honky Tonk, Music City Threads, and Skull’s Rainbow Room.
