Mt. Juliet Real Estate Information

A rapidly growing community located about 17 miles east of downtown Nashville, Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, lies just north of I-40 and near U.S. Route 70. It lies in the the western portion of Wilson County, and encompasses an area of more than 16 square miles. The slogan for the community is The City Between The Lakes, a reference to its location between Old Hickory Lake to the north and Percy Priest Lake to the south. The city is home to a population estimated in 2008 to be just a little over 25,000, enough to make it Wilson County's largest city.

Mt. Juliet was formed as a community in 1835 and incorporated later in 1972. It is a mostly middle-class area, with residents here bringing in a median household annual income of almost $59,000. Though the city was once mainly rural and driven by an agricultural economy, today it is more developed and industrial, with sites like the recently built commercial and residential development, the Providence Marketplace. The nearest hospital is the Summit Medical Center, just five miles away.

Schools in Mt. Juliet are operated by the Wilson County School District, and include Mt. Juliet High School, Mt. Juliet Middle School, West Wilson Middle School and more than half a dozen elementary schools. Because of the area's recent boom in population, there are several more schools in the process of being built and established or in the planning stages. Additionally, there is one K-12 private school, Mount Juliet Christian Academy. For continuing education, the closest community college is 20 miles north of here in Gallatin, and the nearest public university is Tennessee State, 20 miles west.

Parks in the community include Mt Juliet Little League Park, Charlie Daniels Park, named for the country musician who lives here and also home to the Mt. Juliet Community Center, and Sgt. Jerry Mundy Memorial Park. Three state parks are located within 30 minutes by car. The community is located along a stop on the recently launched Music City Star commuter rail line, which provides passengers service into Nashville.
