Green Hills is located south of downtown Nashville on Hillsboro Road (U.S. Highway 431). It is relatively affluent and home to The Mall at Green Hills, a high-end enclosed shopping center which began as a “strip center” (one of the first two sizable such developments in Nashville) in the early 1950s.
Green Hills is in many ways a typical development of its era. It is designed for automobile, not pedestrian, traffic and originally consisted primarily of brick-veneer “ranch” style detached houses on large lots (in part due to the presence of subsurface septic sewage disposal systems; sewers were not added until well after the original development). In more recent years there has been considerable “infill” as many of the larger lots and other remaining open spaces have been redivided to become the sites of higher-density developments.
As Green Hills is neither an incorporated town nor a census-designated place, exact boundaries are disputable and hence an exact population impossible to calculate. However, the most common definition of Green Hills is an area coextensive with the United States Postal Service‘s ZIP code 37215, designated “Green Hills Station”. It is, though, part of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. Therefore, mail sent to residents of, and businesses in, Green Hills have “Nashville, TN” in the address, not “Green Hills, TN.” (Wikipedia)
