  • The store is small and the crowds are large. It was fun to walk around and buy a t-shirt. At my age I did not need any of the "antiques" that were for sale.  more »

  • This is the building where the Marathon Motor Works,1907-1914 was located. It's now the home of several specialty and gift shops. It is also the location of Antique Archeology (American Picker's) Nashville store. The antique machinery is reminiscent of the the types of tools used in the turn of the century manufacture of automobiles. My favorite was the large wooden band saw. Yes except for the drive wheels it's all wood!
  • We were here about 4 years ago and I am amazed at how the area has developed and how many businesses have opened in the buildings! Definitely something for everyone here. From the Jack Daniels gift shop to West & Company shop to the winery and brewstillery, a tattoo shop and more. Of course we had to sample some wine and beer!! Lots of collectibles and original art/clothing/jewelry made by local artisans. A must do in Nashville.
  • This building encompasses a number of shops, restaurants, boutiques, and the history of the Marathon Motor Works which made industrial engines and boilers then from 1907 to 1914 the company manufactured the Marathon automobile. The tools used to create the parts for the car are from the late 1800's and are incredible if you are an old tool lover. You also have a winery and distillery in the building so you can even do tastings. Some of the shops you can visit: Garage Coffee Bang Candy Safe House Tattoo Pure Salon Corsair Artisan Brewery and Taproom Grinder’s Switch Winery Third Coast Comedy Theater Orleans Avenue Restaurant Hair Mama Jones 360 Skin Studio TransPlant Outdoor Living If you plan to visit Antique Archaeology which is a part of this building be prepared to wait in line for about 30 minutes on weekends. They have to limit the number of people in the store due to capacity.
  • Very cool eclectic part of town.
  • Awesome place. A lot to see
