Gossett KIA is proud to serve customers that hail from Bartlett, TN! Want to learn about the great city of Bartlett? Keep reading for a brief overview of the history, culture and attractions that lie within the borders of Bartlett, Tennessee!
For a city that has grown up from a stagecoach stop in Tennessee, Bartlett has done very well for itself. What used to be a place of respite for travelers riding between Nashville and Memphis is now a bustling community, the second largest city in Shelby County. Bartlett is known for its neighborly atmosphere, beautiful landscapes, great food, and fascinating historical attractions.
For visitors and residents alike, the best part about Bartlett is how the city honors the past. Unlike a lot of American cities that are all too happy to tear down historic homes and edifices, Bartlett has done a great job of maintaining these treasures. One of the more famous of these older homes is actually known for being haunted! The Blackwell Manor is said to be occupied by the ghost of a former owner.
Another great spot is the Nicholas Gotten House. Included on the National Register of Historic Places, this house was built by Gotten, a Civil War veteran, in the style of the New England saltbox. It was made into a local museum in 1990.
Bartlett happens to be set in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. All it takes is a trip to Shelby Farms Park. This green space of 4,500 acres has 6.5 miles of paved trails where you can walk, rollerblade or bike to your heart’s desire. There’s also disc golf and plenty of fishing opportunities at the over 20 small bodies of water that lie within the park.
Whether you are grabbing a bite to eat downtown or taking in a bit of fresh air at one of the many parks, Bartlett is a wonderful place to be!
