Friends of William Edmondson Homesite, Park & Gardens

Friends of William Edmonson Homesite Park & Gardens the Friends of the William Edmondson Homesite Park & Gardens, is a501c3 non-profit. Our mission is to preserve, protect, and enhance the Edgehill neighborhood park and historic site at 14th Av. S. and Horton Av., as a living legacy to William Edmondson, Nashville’s most celebrated historical artist. Your donations help us maintain the public greenspace, including installation and upkeep of benches, tables and trash cans, installation and maintenance of playground equipment, and tree planting and maintenance for our Certified Arboretum. Your gift also allows us to hold family-friendly free public events. We have created, in partnership with our Edgehill neighbors, the “Higher Vision Masterplan”, a proposal for green space enhancements, plus a sculpture garden and upgraded historical interpretive site, anchored by a new William Edmondson Cultural Arts Center, Museum, and Branch Library. Your support helps us to promote this plan to Metro Government.
