Most people know about Nissan's importance to Middle TN, with vehicle production plants in Smyna and Dechard, as well as the North American Corporate Headquarters in Franklin. But the Nissan brand has a interesting history too...one that's preserved in Nashville thanks to some devoted volunteers. Here's what we discovered on a private visit to the Nissan Heritage Collection.
The Heritage Collection is not presently open to the public. However, tours are available upon request.
