The City of Bartlett, located in the geographic center of Shelby County, started as a lone stagecoach stop on the Memphis to Nashville route in the 1830s. Since its early days of rural development, Bartlett has grown to become the second largest city in Shelby County and the ninth largest city in the state of Tennessee. However, it definitely retains its small town charm. Explore the shops and restaurants of the Bartlett Station area or take a break in the park.
