Quality of Life
Small-town living with the amenities of a big city. Moderate climate, diverse cultural and entertainment offerings. Top-notch healthcare and housing. Award-winning schools and a low cost of living.
Yes, we have all of those things. But, what really sets Rutherford County apart is our people. From the company executive who contributes countless hours to a nonprofit better the community, to the president of the state’s largest undergraduate institution who rolls up his sleeves every fall to help new students move in, it’s the people who live here who contribute to the stellar quality of life that continues to make Rutherford County one of Tennessee’s fastest growing counties.
