Sumner County

Nashville’s North Shore, Sumner County's business community is anchored by large manufacturing and distribution operations, an outstanding mix of professional service companies and a rapidly expanding retail sector. The county’s entire 63-mile southern border meanders along Old Hickory Lake, which gives Sumner County a unique claim within the Nashville area to a major navigable waterway with lakeside living and unlimited water recreation.
