269.2. Fort Negley


Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Fort Negley was the largest and most important of the fortifications built by Union forces after Nashville fell in 1862. It’s the largest inland stone fortification constructed during the Civil War. You can watch a video, “The Fall of Nashville,” at the Visitors Center to learn how the Union Army captured Nashville. There are photos and interactive displays to really immerse you in the architecture and artillery of the place. Walk through the remains of the fort and imagine the space 150 years ago. And get a great view of downtown!

Open Tuesday-Friday 12-4pm and Saturday 9am-4pm. Or by appointment.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I drive past there frequently, but since it looks like, well, a fort it never occurred to me I could go in!
