You may have heard the term "company town." Back in the day, when corporations built a factory, they often built a town to go with it. Such was the case with the city of Old Hickory, Tennessee, which was literally built by DuPont. While it's no longer a company town, it still retains the neighborly charm it started with a century ago. Join Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads to find out more.
