    Gallatin, Tennessee

gallatin gets it

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.

Gallatin is going up across the board: population, sales tax collections, building permits. We have a talent pipeline of 26,000 graduates annually in a 50-mile radius. 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. Choose Gallatin. Our mission is a resilient and diverse economy. We focus on your success. Flip through our story here.
