During the Civil War, La Vergne alternated between Union and Confederate occupation with at least seven battles and skirmishes on record. Most of the town’s buildings were burned in 1862 leaving it a quiet rural community for the next century. Today, it is home to the largest industrial park in the state, and has become a smart choice for international companies to set up headquarters, including Whirlpool Corporation, Bridgestone, and Singer Sewing Co.
