When Spring Hill was established in 1809, it's very unlikely that those early settlers pictured that their rustic community would one day be home to nearly 33,000 residents. In fact, the population has grown exponentially since 2000 when Spring Hill reached 7,115 residents. A wealth of well-constructed single-family dwellings is drawing even more people to the area. Good jobs are available here and in nearby Nashville. This means that residents can enjoy the best for their personal and professional lives by choosing Spring Hill as their new home.
Before the 19th century, the land where the city is now located was traversed only by Native Americans and wildlife. The earliest European settlers came from the East Coast of the new United States just after the turn of the 19th century. With ambitious plans, they quickly established churches, schools and shops. Agriculture was the main pursuit for most who settled here while others came here to provide essential services to the farmers. The community was small but thriving when the Civil War broke out. Both sides occupied the city at various points throughout the conflict, and a major battle was fought nearby. It's still possible to visit the site of the Battle of Spring Hill to get a better perspective on the area's fascinating history.

The aftermath of the Civil War brought difficult years for Spring Hill. Despite numerous fires and the ravages of tornadoes, the community managed to survive into the 20th century. Agriculture was still important in the area, but industrial operations were also helping the city grow. That growth has continued through today, with more people flocking to the community than ever before. It's easy to see why. The living in Spring Hill is definitely gracious, and anyone would be proud to call this community home.
