Gossett Hyundai happily calls Memphis, Tennessee its hometown, but we’re also big fans of our neighbors to the South in Germantown. The city of Germantown is full of vibrant and friendly people, as well as plenty of fun activities and businesses. Read below for an overview of some of the history and attractions Germantown has to offer!
Fist settled in 1825, Germantown carries with it a rich and powerful history. From the Nashoba Plantation—a land founded to aide in the emancipation of slaves way back in 1830—to its importance as a railroad stop for the Memphis-Charleston Railroad, there’s always something new to discover about Germantown’s past. Today, you can learn all about the city’s history at one of its many preserved sites, like old Fort Germantown or Oaklawn Gardens, where you can check out the Germantown’s first fire truck and first city jail.
There’s no need to live in the past when you’re in Germantown, though. The city has a distinct and lively culture that exudes easy living and peace of mind. Take a stroll through our downtown and check out the many life-size, unique statues of horses that pay homage to the importance of equestrian life in Germantown. In fact, do it right and take the whole Germantown Art Walk—it’s like a museum with more fresh air.
While you’re in the area, you can also stop by one of Germantown’s many delicious and one-of-a-kind restaurants or coffee shops. Catch a show at the Germantown Performing Arts Center—their performances are so impressive, you’ll forget you’re not in a big city. Or, simply pay a visit to one of our many well-kept and exciting parks.
