Old Shady Lawn

Shady Lawn, once a gas station and restaurant, began its life as a full service truck stop on Old US 31 Highway. A full lunch cost 85 cents. Families would gather for Sunday dinner after church. After I-65 was built, the business relocated to Tennessee Exit 6, Bryson Road and Elkton, on I-65. Today the building that was once the Shady Lawn is now Sunrise Chapel.
