The curious case of Nashville's sisterhood is a great article. It's my understanding that
Nashville's Red Light district then (North of James Robinson around what is now the
Farmer's Market and Park area) remained mostly in that area up until the 1950's..
To far back for my memory, but it would be convenient for those visiting legislators.
