I have lived in La Vergne for 11 years now and I have seen it grow in both businesses and population. It is a quiet and calm place with plenty of real estate! There is plenty of diversity in this small town. It also has great public schools. (The La Vergne schools are considered to be the most diverse schools in Rutherford County)

La Vergne is a nice quite town with hidden gems. You would have never suspected La Vergne to have anything interesting going; However, it is quite the opposite! There are tons of fun things to do and get together to join in on, they even have a town Facebook page so anybody can join and keep up with the town!
After living in Smyrna, Tennessee for sixteen years, we found the perfect house in none other than La Vergne. I was very apprehensive of moving here; however, so far it has been great. We live out in the "country" on an acre and a half and most of the neighbors in the area do as well, so it is very quiet over here. Would definitely not take La Vergne off your list of potential cities due to what you have heard.
