Learn more about Fort Nashborough.
On January 1, 1780, Nashville was founded when James Robertson led his group of pioneers across the frozen Cumberland River to a place called the Cedar Bluffs. It was here that these men built a fort called Nashborough, which would be shelter for the first families until Indian attacks ended in 1792.
