When I was a child, the town of Nashville looked different.
The corner of Routes 127 and 15 had no stoplight, only a stop and go light.
At that same corner, the place where a big gas station and grocery now stands was home to a small donut shop called Gutzler’s Donuts, a tall, thin building with a storefront below and an apartment above(where a friend of mine lived during some high school years),and a small business on the other side of the donut shop.
Just south was a gas station, where a small building with a few businesses now stand. Beside that was a tiny ice cream shop, where we relaxed at the picnic table and watched a sign painter add a word to the building.
And just south of that, where Hardees now stands, were two small houses.
West of Hardees, across 127, was IGA. Now Subway has brought new life to the building.
