No End In Sight For Mt. Juliet Growth!
Since Providence Market Place was built over 10 years ago, Mt. Juliet has experienced a steady growth helping to award Wilson County the fastest growing county in the 2010 census and the 29th fastest growing in the US.
The city nearly doubled in population from 2000 to 2010 (to approximately 24,000), while Wilson County’s population increased 28.4 percent (to approximately 114,000). Providence Subdivisions, apartments and condos as well as the 55+ community of Dell Webb instantly generated housing for several thousand people that not only sparked a population boom but an influx of industry to the city. Mt. Juliet is one of “Tennessee’s Fastest Growing Communities” with over 370 new houses built in 2014 and a new business permit issued every two days.
The city today is home to such names as Under Armour , KHS America and Amazon. The Mt. Juliet infrastructure did not lag behind. New roads, schools and healthcare facilities have been, and are continuing to be built to meet the demand. In March of 2016, it was announced that the Wilson County school board approved North Greenhill and Lebanon Road in Mt. Juliet for the new Wilson County High School. Multiple residential projects are currently in development that will yield close to 700 new homes. Country pastures are yielding to the expansion and there doesn’t seem to be an end to the growth in the foreseeable future. Mt. Juliet is a friendly city that prides itself on maintaining southern hospitality and values of a close-knit community that puts the needs of its people first. All in all, it’s a great place to live!
Theories as to why the renowned growth for this little country town could arguably be attributed to the scenic countryside of rolling hills, sitting between two lakes called Old Hickory and Percy Priest, and the lower cost of living and the opportunity to live the simpler country life. But, others would say the growth occurred after the days of urban living and living close to downtown became less desirable.
Many people in Nashville and the outlying areas remember too well when desegregation laws came in to play in the late 1950’s. In 1954, from a landmark decision from the Brown vs. Board of Education case, Davidson County implemented the “Nashville Plan” with the idea to gradually integrate the public schools of Metro Nashville. After a decade of parents forced to bus their children to schools across town and to unfamiliar neighborhoods, the “Nashville Plan”, in effect, caused a mass exodus to surrounding counties that were not under the mandatory busing efforts. Some parents were pulling their children out of the Davidson county Metro school systems and putting them into private schools that seemed to spring up overnight. Other families seeking different financial options were moving outside the city limits. During the 60’s and 70’s this urban sprawl to move out side the Nashville city limits is what put Williamson County located south/west of Nashville on the map. Franklin TN., and Brentwood TN., became the hottest and fastest selling markets in Tennessee. Over time these “hot-spots” began to slow down as housing costs soared and people wanted more affordable options. Eyes were turning to Wilson County, with it’s Superior-ranked schools, and cheaper land, Wilson County became the other option. People would say “you can buy more “house” for your money in Wilson County”! And “It was true”, you could buy more house in Wilson County! Mount Juliet located West in Wilson County became the target market. With it’s proximity 20 minutes to downtown and less than 15 minutes to the airport; Mount Juliet became the logical choice. In the late 80’s early 90’s, new construction and subdivisions started popping up everywhere. The population of Mount Juliet exploded, and the city scrambled to keep up!
Mount Juliet with a terrain of gently sloping hills, beautiful countryside, and breath taking sunset views off Old Hickory Lake, what is there not to love about Mount Juliet?
But, it didn’t stop there! Mount Juliet kept growing and growing! Around the first of the last decade something else happened that created another tremendous shift in the Mount Juliet market.
The Step System was created, a multi-step sewer system that allowed builders to step a neighborhood of houses down to a single pump station in the neighborhood. In the past, houses built outside the Mount Juliet city limits required a septic system. However, indicative of Middle Tennessee can be red rocky clay soil resulting in some land in Mount Juliet not able to perk for a septic system. This new innovative sewer option overcame this soil obstacle and the Wilson County Health Department decided it would oversee and manage the step systems. This opened up more and more land that was once un-buildable. Farmers began to sell off their farms to developers and the builders kept building. Subdivisions south of Mount Juliet road and other areas were going in with styles no longer reflecting the 80’s and people were flocking to get the newest and trendiest style of homes.
In the last two decades, Mount Juliet of Wilson County has exploded!

Mount Juliet growing with leaps and bounds was heading into the 21st century and it was time for the city to put their big boy pants on and make a major change.

But the residents of Gladeville are proud of their little area and are holding true to its name. Gladeville or (The Glade) is really a nickname; it’s not a city, and not really a town, just a place.
