The DHNA has stayed true to its roots by maintaining its position as the premier membership-based advocacy organization for the Donelson, Hermitage, and Old Hickory neighborhoods. In pursuance of this goal, the DHNA provides quality programming relevant to the community, service projects, and more.
The Donelson Hermitage Neighborhood Alliance was formed in the late 1980s when a small group of neighbors from the Donelson – Hermitage area came together to oppose a 600-acre development in the bend of the Stones River because it was incompatible with existing neighbors.
Later, when city officials proposed using the same 600 acres as Nashville’s city dump, DHNA rallied the community again. Both projects were defeated and it became clear that neighbors and neighborhoods are stronger when they stand together.
Over the years, there have been many situations when DHNA has taken the lead to coordinate resources and bring neighbors together to protect and improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
