About Thompson's Station

Located approximately 25 miles south of Nashville, amid the rolling hills and pastoral countryside of Middle Tennessee, the inviting Town of Thompson’s Station is a great place to live.  Steeped in history, from its earliest settlers in 1780, to the stirring Battle of Thompson’s Station and as a stop along Tennessee’s Great Train Trail, the town’s tranquil environment and convivial atmosphere is worlds apart from hectic urban lifestyles, yet near to all that world-renowned “Music City” and surrounding communities have to offer.

Bridging both storied past…and promising future, Thompson’s Station prospers through its historic heritage and proximity to Nashville, Franklin and Spring Hill. Welcome Home!

Mayor's Welcome Letter

Welcome to Thompson’s Station: Tennessee's Village Green!  Thank you for visiting our site.  With a population of a little more than 2,600, a rich history and proximity to a major metropolitan area, Thompson’s Station is a wonderful place to call home.  There are not too many communities where you can literally have it all: a pastoral setting in one of America’s most vibrant regions with access to leading educational, entertainment, and outdoor activities, not to mention nationally headquartered companies and entrepreneurial employers.

So what makes our Town so special? You’ll probably get a different answer from each of our citizens but I personally believe it comes down to this:  a diverse group of citizens pulling for the common good to build a community that will be a model of livability, sustainability and creativity all the while protecting the natural resources and beauty which are of high value to the community.  

We stand for preservation of what has come and what has been given to our area while appreciating that the future is now and continued growth will happen.  Our citizens appreciate and desire wildlife, hillsides, streams, open spaces and agriculture. We pursue ways to stay healthy and connected. We encourage volunteerism and celebrate when we find ways to get things done without huge expense to taxpayers. We look out for one another. We have FUN.

The Town of Thompson’s Station is committed to working with the community to ensure that the Town effectively serves its citizens, neighborhoods, and businesses to help all succeed while nurturing our strong sense of place.  

I warmly welcome you to our beautiful town in the heart of Middle Tennessee. Stop by Town Hall and stay awhile, I know you’ll be glad you did.
