The Edgehill neighborhood is a community of diverse cultures, races, and ethnicities. The neighborhood has existed for more than 200 years and is currently made up of commercial entities and a mix of housing types. 


The most famous local landmark is the polar bear statues. These fun statues were originally a set of four that depict polar bears mid-snowball fight. They were commissioned in the 1930s by the Polar Bear Frozen Custard Shop who used them for advertising. They have had several homes in Edgefield since the custard shop closed after WWII; two of the statues have since been moved to Germantown and the other two have been given a permanent residence at the corner 12th Avenue South and Edgehill Avenue known as Polar Bear Plaza.


The Edgehill Opportunity Zone is a cluster of two Census tracts and is part of the Nashville Promise Zone.  It is situated between the thriving Gulch and 12 South districts and includes famous Music Row.
