I was minding my own business yesterday afternoon trying to get from A to B in downtown Nashville to drop off tickets for that evening’s hockey game when I looked up and saw this building. Fairly nondescript in shape, but the details! There’s a billboard size Norman Rockwell’s “Barbershop Quartet“, originally on the cover of the ‘Saturday Evening Post‘, on the side of the building as you head towards Broadway. Moving closer I can see the Art Deco detailed windows with their 75th Anniversary decals and find the home of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

The building at 110 Seventh Avenue North has an ornate iron gate across their double door with detailing of a music stand. It was a lovely surprise for this Junk Lady to find while running an errand. The Barbershop Harmony Society was founded in Oklahoma in 1938 and for years had its headquarters in Wisconsin before relocating to Nashville in 2006.
