Williamson County has a rich past, with three key Civil War battles fought here—the Battle of Brentwood, the Battle of Thompson’s Station and the Battle of Franklin, with multiple sites to visit and learn. Farms and rural areas are plentiful, with beautiful rolling green hills covered with trees the rule instead of the exception.
The Cool Springs area is site of one of the strongest job markets in the country, with many multi-story contemporary office buildings and corporate headquarters, offering a strong jobs base from such employers as Nissan North America (world corporate headquarters), Mars Petcare, Tractor Supply Company, Verizon Wireless and Community Health Systems, among many others.
