Our Local Community
With roots dating back to the mid-1800’s, the 12South neighborhood has a rich history of community, commercial development, and culture. In the 1940’s, the community was a blossoming, self-sufficient district full of small businesses and residential growth. After a struggle through the mid-century suburb emigration, 12South has experienced a renewal and rebirth.
Today, the community is one of the fastest growing areas of Nashville. From Farmers’ Markets to festivals to everyday strolls through its streets and shops, the heart of 12South is about connecting with your neighbors. The 12South Neighborhood is a rich community of innovation, warmth, and a renewed appreciation for local business.
The 12 South Dental Studio building has a diverse history: ranging from a chicken coop, to a grocery store, to a beauty parlor, and now a first-class dental studio. The building was purchased by Charles Howell, Jr., in 1939 and Howell Hardware operated in the space from the 1950’s to early 1970’s. It became Howell Construction, then Mountain Top, and most recently, Harb’s Rugs, which continues to operate to the east of the studio.
During construction, it was important to everyone that the history and culture of the location be preserved. The original ceilings have remained exposed in the reception area to remind us of the legacy we continue under this roof and within these walls.
The iconic “I Believe in Nashville” mural was painted by Adrien Saporiti of DCXV Industries in 2012 and refurbished in 2013. This image has served as one of the most recognizable Nashville scenes and is frequently captured by locals and tourists alike. We are proud to represent the city we live in and continue to serve its people.
