Donelson is a neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee about 6 mi east of downtown Nashville along U.S. Route 70. It is named in honor of John Donelson, co-founder of Nashville and father-in-law of Andrew Jackson, Nashvillian and seventh President of the United States. Unless you’re moving from the coasts, Nashville home prices can be shocking. What $200,000 buys in other cities might pick up a condo on the west side. That’s where Donelson can help. Six miles from downtown, Donelson was formerly considered a separate city. It’s next to Percy Priest Lake and along the banks of both the Stones River and the Cumberland River, where you’ll find marinas and even a yacht club. Donelson ZIP codes have one of the city’s highest median income levels, yet much of the housing is modest and affordable. A lot of “lifestyle” residents move here for the lakes and golf courses.
