Hillsboro Presbyterian Church
In 1920, two Nashville congregations merged, hyphenating their two names to become the Broadway-Grace Presbyterian Church. Two years later, the 350-member congregation had found both a permanent location and, with it, a new name. Hillsboro Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Hillsboro Road and Dixie Place, became the new neighbor of Peabody College and, as it grew, the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
In 1954, the church bought its present property, called Singing Hills, from the estate of R. E. Baulch, a Nashville theater operator.
Its present chapel had once been a private screening room, later a solarium and then, before construction of the sanctuary, a site for worship services. Worship and Sunday School began at Singing Hills in September 1954. However, worship services also continued at the Dixie Place location until its sale in 1959. Since then, they have built, renovated, and expanded at Singing Hills.
But the history of the church involves far more than listing dates or a chronology of pastors. Even recounting the church's officially-sponsored projects overlooks the occasions when members see an unmet need and act. Nor can the vitality of the church be conveyed by a recitation of things past. To tell you where we meet, and how we got there, isn't as important as saying who we are and why.
