In 1921, St. Ann Catholic Church moved from the second floor of a store on Charlotte Avenue to its present location at 51st and Charlotte. The St. Ann School, which opened in September of the same year, is the oldest diocesan school in Davidson County. This year marks 100 years of growing with the West Nashville community, and parishioners received a historical marker at a celebration this summer. Anniversary festivities close with a tree planting ceremony in November. After a century, St. Ann Catholic Church & School continues to be a vibrant parish with a growing membership of young and mature families, and many third-generation children attend the school.
