A Continuing History
The long hallways and tall ceilings of Cummins Station are filled with the secrets of commerce from days gone by. Originally completed in 1907, Cummins Station made its mark on the Nashville architectural scene as a warehouse for Maxwell House Coffee, followed by numerous hardware and grocery wholesalers, Washington Manufacturing and a variety of other businesses. The current multi-member Cummins Station community debuted in 1993 after the property was acquired by new ownership. The Cummins Station community has since undergone further major renovations, and the structure is redeveloped with a new vision that embraces the future while respecting the integrity of its past.
