Dickson, TN : What you need to know

Dickson is a desirable location for people looking to live within an hour's drive of Nashville, yet prefer a more laid-back, small-town setting. The area's rich agriculture industry is vital to its economy and includes several family farms that double as tourism destinations and special event venues. Dickson's small downtown district has undergone extensive redevelopment in recent years, attracting investment by local boutiques and other independent retailers. Many outdoor recreation options await at the 3,700-acre Montgomery Bell State Park, which has 12 miles of hiking trails and three lakes. Meanwhile, residents benefit from quality schools and health care provided by Horizon Medical Center, Dickson Medical Associates and several specialists.
