The original Arden Place was the stately home owned by Tennessee novelist, poet and historian John Trotwood Moore. The Granny White Pike at Lone Oak Road estate was torn down in the late 1960's and John Trotwood Moore Middle School was constructed in its place.
The current Arden Place was a cattle farm owned by Samuel A. Wilson. Mr. Wilson was also a Nashville business man who owned a children's shoe store selling Buster Brown shoes. Mr. Wilson sold the cattle farm to Sheridan Construction Company, a premier builder. Sheridan Construction Company started construction in 1972. Because this was only the second condominium development in the state, Sheridan developed Arden Place in phases starting with units 101 - 122. As each phase sold out, development would begin on the next phase. Complete development was finished in 1980 with a total of 160 units.
Each unit was given a different fašade so the development did not look "cookie cutter." To provide an uncluttered look, all electrical and telephone and cable lines are constructed underground.
Each phase of development was given a court yard name. Court yards are named from William Shakespeare who named his home Arden Place at Stratford-on-Avon in England.
Arden Place... a place to call home.
