Created in 1937 from the G. A. Puryear farm, it was once part of Samuel Watkin's country estate. Olmsted Bros. Landscape Architects designed the roads and lots to flow naturally with the hills, valleys, and brook. Residential development was made possible by the 1915 construction of a concrete road. Known by 1918 as Woodmont Boulevard, it was the first documented concrete road in Tennessee.

Erected 1999 by The Historical Commission of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County.
