A Brown County landmark, The Nashville House is renowned for savory home cooking, antique collectibles and gadgets, and old-fashioned hospitality.

The first hostelry in Brown County, built in 1859 during the Civil War, the original Nashville House was frequented by a variety of guests and visitors--from loggers, to artists, to travelers and local residents.

After fire tragically destroyed the original building in 1943, the Nashville House was lovingly rebuilt. Although the new structure has no guest rooms, its famous food service and "Old Country Store" continue to draw scores of visitors and neighbors. An elevator also now provides ready access to the building dining room.

Serving Dinner and Lunch
The dinner menu of the Nashville House features a variety of delicious entrees. Country-fried hamsteak with red gravy, tangy barbecued backloin ribs, baked Hoosier ham, roast turkey, tender T-bone steak, and the ever-popular crisp, country-fried chicken. Its famous hot fried biscuits and baked apple butter, vegetable, and coleslaw complete the meal. Sassafras tea is served either hot or cold.

For lunch, The Nashville House offers Smoked Sausage, Chopped Steak, a large Salad, and Luncheon of the day. Sandwich plates are a special feature with Hoosier Smoked Ham (plain or topped with aged Cheddar Cheese), tender Roast Turkey and Chopped Steak. Each is served with potato chips and of course our famous homemade Apple Butter and Fried Biscuits.

All sandwiches are made with oven-fresh bread, and desserts are also fresh from the bake shop ovens, with pecan pie and fresh fruit cobblers a specialty.
