Comfortably situated in Maury and Williamson counties, Spring Hill is a city nestled around 30 miles south of the bustling Nashville. It covers around 18 square miles of rolling land, and as of 2013 had approximately 32,500 residents. Spring Hill homes tend towards a newer vintage and clean, classically designed lines. Prices range from lavishly expensive to moderately affordable, and neighborhoods lean towards more of a modernly suburban feel, despite the town's relatively ancient origins.
Spring Hill was first inhabited by settlers in 1808 and by 1809 the city had been established. The land was the site of a Civil War Battle in 1864 now called the Battle of Spring Hill, where the Confederate Army of Tennessee attacked a Union force. Rippavilla Plantation, a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a remaining relic of those earlier days. The plantation provides an annual corn maze as well as educational activities in its museum. Other attractions for curious tourists or entertainment-seeking locals are the Spring Hill Antique Mall, the Spring Hill Self-Guided Battlefield Driving Tour, the King's Creek Golf Club, and the Tennessee Museum of Early Farm Life. This last activity can be found just behind the Rippavilla Plantation, and offers a display of horse- and mule-drawn equipment that dates back to the days of the city's origins.
The Spring Hill Public Library has in store for residents a plethora of books available for public access. The city is also home to a large variety of public schools providing education for children in the area. Spring Hill High School, Spring Hill Elementary School, and Spring Hill Middle School are just a few of these, and there are private schools available as well such as the Columbia Academy and the Spring Hill Academy. Spring Hill was also at one point the site of the Saturn Corporation production facility, which ran from 1990 to 2009. In 2011 GM announced that they had plans to recycle the production building as an ultra-flexible plant designed to construct different types of cars of similar sizes. Keeping the city connected with its surrounding neighbors is its main street called US Highway 31, which also is named the Columbia Pike or the Nashville Highway. Spring Hill has an abundance of activities and historical culture to offer its residents, sprawling across 17 square miles of land bursting with stories about the 1800s and the events that the city had seen and endured.
