HISTORY of NOLENSVILLE ROAD AREA

RADNOR COLLEGE
Two blocks west on the hill stood Radnor, a college for young women.  Founded by A N Eshman in 1906, it gained national attention for its complimentary educational tours for students.  After the school closed in 1914, a printing plant on campus served until 1924 as the Cumberland Presbyterian Publishing House.  In 1921, a spectacular fire claimed the college's main building.

WOODBINE
As early settler of this area was James Menees, at whose home Mill Creek Baptist Church was formed in 1797.  James Whitsitt, first pastor, served over 50 years.  Earlier known as Flat Rock, in 1929, this place was renamed Woodbine, after the David Hughes Estate once located on Nolensville Road.  In 1919, the L & N Railroad began operation of Radnor Yards.
