Spring Hill, Tennessee:
Americana Charm in a Booming Economy

Located in both Williamson and Maury Counties, Spring Hill is listed as one of the top 10 fastest-growing cities in the nation. Just as it is split between two counties, Spring Hill’s dual nature pits the quaintness of historic Tennessee geography against a booming economy, which is bringing a rush of new jobs, businesses, and commodities to the area. If you love the excitement of a growing city but enjoy old-school Americana charm, Spring Hill is the place for you!
The area is filled with historic sites such as mansions, churches, and plantations, acting as time capsules taking us back to the days of the earliest settlements. Of these, perhaps the most notable is the Rippavilla plantation, which was built in 1855 and is still open for tours and private events today. Adjacent to the Rippavilla mansion is the Battle of Spring Hill Civil War site and cemeteries. Altogether, Spring Hill has 24 historic markers highlighting the city’s history from battlefield sites to former homes of Confederate Generals.
Parks & Recreation
Residents can enjoy plenty of green spaces to play, relax, or exercise at one of the city’s five parks. The 30-acre Fischer Park (formerly Port Royal Park) is the city’s largest, with an ADA-accessible playground, a splash pad, restrooms, athletic fields, tennis and basketball courts, and a walking path, pavilions, and an amphitheater for movie nights. The Walnut Street Skate Park is designed for skateboards, inline skates, BMX and freestyle bicycles, and non-motorized scooters. Other parks include Harvey Park with playgrounds and a walking track; Evans Park with athletic fields, a dog park, pavilions, and playgrounds; and McLemore Park with picnic areas, grills, playgrounds, and basketball courts.
Several youth leagues offer local competitive team play for ages 4-18.

Economic & Community Growth
In 2023, Spring Hill will be home to two major players in the auto industry: a new General Motors assembly plant which will begin production of the all-electric Cadillac LYRIQ and the Ultium Cells LLC plant which will manufacture the LYRIQ’s batteries.
In the community sphere, the city mayor has tasked a Town Center Redevelopment Committee to create a plan for an identifiable downtown district that would include sidewalks, plus commercial, residential, and green spaces. Learn more about this initiative at: www.springhilltn.org.
Following the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce is a great way to keep up with the city’s continued evolution. Every July the Chamber hosts the Experience Spring Hill event at Spring Hill High School. Attendees can expect to meet a wide variety of vendors and businesses, learn more about available government and community services, do a little shopping from local businesses, and sample some of the local restaurants’ cuisine!
