A 217-year-old city doesn’t stay alive simply by existing. It stays alive because it grows. Smart growth. Pro-active growth. Gallatin balances the ability to welcome the new, but also politely say “no thank you” to something that we know won’t thrive here.

#GallatinTn is going up across the board- population, economy, and investment. We’re truly a city that invests in itself. Our mission is a resilient and diverse economy. 

Recognized as one of the top “power suburbs” in the United States, Gallatin boasts high-paying jobs and low taxes. Economic health, rich in education excellence, a thriving arts scene, and a vibrant retail environment make Gallatin a hub for family life.

And a big plus: we're 23 miles northeast of downtown Nashville, a city filling with young professionals and big-name businesses. Amazon. AllianceBernstein. Ernst & Young. Lyft. Warby Parker.
