At the time they were known as the world’s largest producer of inland barges. When Nashville’s NFL stadium was built in the 1990s the building was spared and later renovated to become a unique part of Nashville’s wedding industry. Its waterfront location along with its close (walkable) location to Broadway and the nearby hotels makes it an amazing choice for your Nashville wedding.
