Brown County is a place that celebrates its past... Some people believe there are two histories of Brown County. One story traces the founding and development of the Art Colony; the other is focused on the local residents and culture. The truth is, the complete history of Brown County is rich with a beautiful blending of both. Due to the popularity of the local artists and the visitors they attracted, small shops, lodging facilities, and restaurants opened throughout Nashville and Brown County.
