Belle Meade, French for “beautiful meadow”, operates independently as a city within a city in Nashville, complete with its own regulations, city hall, and police force. The city's history dates back to 1807, when John Harding of Virginia purchased the Dunham's Station log cabin and 250 acres on the Natchez Trace near Richland Creek. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.1 square miles and an average per capita income of $129,928 which is the highest in the state and among the highest in the nation. Belle Meade is predominantly a residential neighborhood although it does feature the beautiful Cheekwood Botanical Garden, Percy Warner Park and a number of fantastic restaurants such as Sperry’s Steakhouse open since 1974.
