For information and history of this great building click HERE!

The Werthan Bag Building is located on 8th Ave in Nashville which is now called Rosa Parks Blvd in the Germantown area. The buildings upper floors have been renovated into swanky condos.

This building was in near ruins when refurbishing began in 1998—-it is still not completely renovated yet, but progress is being made. The condos are available to buy and I believe that most are sold.

NASHVILLE IN THE MOVIES: The exteriors of this building was used in the 1990 Best Picture “Driving Miss Daisy.” The family name in the movie was Werthan and Boolie (played by Dan Aykroyd) owned and ran the Werthan Bag Company. The exteriors of the building shown in the film is the actual Werthan Bag building in Nashville.
