The town of Joelton, located northwest of downtown Nashville, is considered a suburb of Music City, with many residents opting for the benefits of small-town living while being close enough to the perks of the larger metropolis. The superb dining at Shadowbrook is the real draw. Clarksville, founded in 1784, is Tennessee’s fifth largest municipality, supporting a population of some 210,000 residents. Farming plays a large role here, with tobacco serving as a major source of income for the area. Both the Cumberland and Red Rivers run through Clarksville, which is why it is sometimes referred to as “Queen City of the Cumberland.” The newly constructed RiverWalk snakes around the Cumberland River, providing a pleasant place for a stroll. Adams is synonymous with the Bell Witch, the legendary sorceress who tormented the Bell family for years. The story may be the most documented account of the supernatural in this country, with many books written about the hauntings. During July folks gather in Adams for the old-time threshing show, to see displays of wheat-threshing equipment and various demonstrations and events. There’s also the Bell Witch Bluegrass Festival in August.
