Fort Negley is a place where people and history come together. It is a place to learn that we are a part of history and not apart from it. The Park is open year round from dawn to dusk for self-guided tours.
From Fossils in the Fort, free lectures, re-enactments, educational programs, hiking trails, and the Monarch Butterfly Garden to the annual Taste of Wedgewood-Houston fundraiser, there is something for everyone!
Join us the second Saturday of each month at 2pm to learn about the rich 155+ year history of the park from one of our staff!
The Sons of Union Veterans meets at the Fort Negley Visitors Center the fourth Monday every other month from 7 pm to 8 pm. Programs are open to all.
Celebrate one of Nashville’s most historic neighborhoods at the 4th annual Taste of Wedgewood-Houston, a 21-and-up mixer, on September 24, from 6 – 8 PM at Jackalope Brewing Co. Vendors with samples include TN Brew Works, Diskin Cider, Bacon & Caviar, Bastion, Clean Plate Club, Corsair, Dozen, Gabby’s, Nashville Craft, Parson’s Chicken & Fish, Professor Bailey’s, Clawson’s Pub & Deli, Humphrey’s Street Coffee House, and of course Jackalope.
