Located in the geographic center of Shelby County, Bartlett started as a lone stagecoach stop on the Memphis to Nashville route in the 1830s and is now the 11th most populated city in the state of Tennessee.
Though the area has changed immensely since those early days of rural development, the small-town spirit thrives with a mix of locally-owned businesses and family-friendly parks.
The kind of city where one might live, work, and retire, Bartlett comprises affordable, large single-family homes full of charm and situated near Shelby Farms, one of Tennessee’s major parks.
The family fun is year-round, offering events like a fireworks extravaganza, children’s fishing rodeo, Bartlett BBQ Contest, as well as the Bartlett Festival, BBQ Contest and Car Show.
