The city is rich with history dating back to railroading and Civil War times. There are several original homes and home sites, as well as the Union outpost of Fort Germantown, for those wishing to immerse themselves in the history of the area. The municipality has seen most of its growth and home building during the later 1900s. Much care was taken by the civic leadership to ensure that growth produced an aesthetic, well-planned community. These strategic efforts are obvious in the many amenities offered throughout Germantown. Most residents live within one mile of a park facility, and the city claims the highest percentage of parkland per acre of any municipality in Tennessee.
