NORTH EDGEFIELD REMEMBERED


STORY OF A NASHVILLE NEIGHBORHOOD

C. WILLIAM McKEE

North Edgefield Remembered tells the story of an important,

yet often overlooked and undervalued, neighborhood.  The

book chronicles a community where citizens, religious and

educational institutions, small businesses, manufacturing

plants, social services agencies and public officials worked

in concert to build a vibrant place to both work and live.  In

many ways the story of North Edgefield emphasizes and

parallels the growth of Nashville from a country town to a

great city.  This district is rich in history and historical people

and events.  Noted North Edgefield leaders from the past -

Tennessee Governor Neill Smith Brown, General William White,

the Reverend John B. McFerrin, Nashville School Superintendent

Joseph J. Keyes, author Beth Salter Whitson, and newspaper

editor/owner W. F. Bang - welcome you, through the pages of

North Edgefield Remembered, to their beloved neighborhood.
