Though we have easy access to larger cities (we are within a day’s drive of 75 percent of the nation’s major markets), we are proud of our small-town feel. A casual lifestyle has always been part of Gallatin’s charm, and that will continue because it is a priority with us. Yet, businesses looking at Gallatin will find reasonably priced land, available both from private developers and in municipally owned industrial sites, along with a willingness to work and build for the future.
